Resources and Research Tips for the Retail Industry

Finding and Using Financials

Retail financials and norms may be found in a variety of sources, including print directories and online databases.
When you find industry financials, take note of how the information is presented. Look for:

  • The date financials were reported
  • The currency used (in thousands, in millions, in U.S. dollars, etc.)
  • Whether or not the figures are "estimates"
  • The NAICS or SIC code
  • The source for the financials
