The top entries from those countries that made the list were China's Bailian Group (7.5 billion Euros), which entered the list at number 101, and Russia's X5 Retail Group NV ($3.6 billion) at number 191, according to this story in India Retailing.
The complete list itself also shows other changes in the world, with Tesco PLC ($80 billion) assuming its place as the world's fourth-largest retailer, pushing Germany's Metro AG ($75 billion) down to fifth.
Wal-Mart kept its number one slot. Indeed, Wal-Mart's $349 billion group sales for 2006 is more than three-and-one-half times the roughly $98 billion reported by France's Carrefour S.A., widening Wal-Mart's lead over the world's second-largest retailer. The American HomeDepot chain ($91 billion) came in third.
The rest of the Top Ten were dominated by American retailers ($66 billion Kroger at #6, $60 billion Target at #7, $60 billion Costco at #8 and $53 billion Sears at #9) except the #10 slot, help by Germany's Schwarz Unternehmens Treuhand KG (52.4 billion Euro).
That Tesco/Metro change marks "the first movement among the Top five since 2003," according to the India Retailing story.
