2015 Retail Fortune 500 Rankings and 2008 - 2015 Fortune 500 Comps
••• © Barbara Farfan for About.com

In May 2015,​ Fortune Magazine published its "Fortune 500" list for the 61st time, ranking the largest U.S. companies, both privately owned and publicly traded, according to annual revenue. As is true every year, the 2015 Fortune 500 rankings are based on the annual gross revenue figures, not on the profits for the previous fiscal year for each company included on the list.
Since the Fortune 500 ranking numbers provide a comparison to each company's progress relative to all U.S. companies in all industries, a rise or fall in Fortune 500 rankings doesn't necessarily correlate to a rise or fall in an individual company’s revenue. However, when just comparing year-over-year ups and downs in the Retail Fortune 500, a rise or fall in the rankings is often a reflection of retail relevance, even between retailing companies that aren't direct competitors.

Included in this 2015 Retailing Companies Fortune 500 are retail chains, restaurant chains, Automobile retailers, oil companies with convenience retailing, and companies that have retailing as a significant part of their business. So this Retail Fortune 500 multi-year comparison chart includes companies that solely do retail like Wal-Mart and Costco, as well as companies that have retailing as a significant part of their business like Apple, CVS/Caremark, and U.S. auto companies like GM and Ford. The upward and downward trends of some of the largest companies in the U.S. can be easily spotted using this retail Fortune 500 comparison chart.
The comparison list below is arranged alphabetically. To view Retail Fortune 500 lists arranged by year, by ranking, and by retailing sector, use the links at the end of this article.
