Methodology summary for this and each subsequent table in this report:
1. Coresight Research attributes store openings and closures to the year in which they occurred or are expected to occur.
2. As companies have different fiscal year-ends, total store count information for most public retailers in the list above is based on reported counts from either the third or fourth quarter of their fiscal 2023. Total store count information for private retailers in the list above is based on reported counts from December 2023.
“Confirmed” closures/openings are those confirmed to have taken place to date (such as through retrospective reporting and our tracking of store counts including through ChainXY data); “planned” closures/openings are those announced but not yet confirmed to have taken place.
*Estimate based on multiyear projections or non-calendar fiscal year data
***Base store count is as of the end of the company’s third fiscal quarter, or the company’s store count in December 2023, and does not reflect closures since then
†Total includes a small number of retailers that each announced fewer than two store openings and are not included in the table
