Ever wonder how many toy stores there are? Answer...
« on: January 16, 2003, 02:37 PM »
As far as retail distribution goes, these are where all of our favorite Star Wars figure haunts stand in regards to total number of stores in the U.S.:

  • Wal-Mart = over 2,800 stores
  • K-Mart = around 1,500 stores
  • KB Toys = over 1,300 stores
  • Target = 1,148 stores
  • Toys 'R' Us = 686 stores
  • Disneyland/World = exactly 2 stores (but you already knew that, I'm sure)
Some surprising numbers in there, at least to me.  Like I mentioned elsewhere, these stores really vary by region - tons of Target stores out here in Southern California, but very few Wal-Marts.  Vice versa I'm sure for back East and down South.  So we should all try to help eachother out around here to "spread the wealth!"   :)

Good topic, I actually have 2 Targets very close to me (1 additional not too far, 1 K Mart very close (2 additional not too far), 2 TRU (1 additional not too far, 0 Wal Mart unless I want to drive 35-40 miles away for usually nothing and 1 KB. We also have a store called Meijers, it is on the east coast I know, but not everywhere- 3 of those. But I have complaints about all, hehe. See my thread here for details. ;)
