9 Retailers Make Fortune’s “Most Admired” List

Costco is the top store chain, ranked #7




Home Depot also made the list, ranked at #20

While tech and financial services firms dominate the top of the 25th edition of Fortune magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies,” retailers of various stripes also made the list’s upper echelon.

The roster is based on a poll of some 3700 corporate executives, directors and analysts, who chose a total of 645 companies this year. While perennial #1 vote-getter Apple (Cupertino, Calif.) has a substantial store fleet, it is categorized as a computer company on the roster.

Here are the retailers that made the cut (listed alphabetically) and their rankings:

  • Costco (Issaquah, Washington): #7
  • Home Depot (Atlanta): #20
  • Lowes (Mooresville, N.C.): #47
  • McDonald’s (Chicago): #38
  • Nordstrom (Seattle): #27
  • Publix (Lakeland, Fla.): #41
  • Starbucks (Seattle) #14
  • Target (Minneapolis): #21
  • Walmart (Bentonville, Ark.): #11
