Our fifth annual ranking of national retailers in New YorkCity shows a 2.4 percent increase in the total number of chainstores over the past year, compared to a 1.8 percent gain instores between 2010 and 2011. Although prominent retailerslike Filene’s Basement and Betsey Johnson closed during thepast year, fewer national retailers overall contracted—only 23.5percent of the companies on our list reduced their retail foot-print in the city, compared to 31 percent last year—and moreexpanded (29.1 percent of retailers had a net increase in stores vs. 28 percent in 2011). This marks the fifth straight year therehas been a net increase in the number of national chain storesin the five boroughs.Our analysis shows that the 310 retailers that were listedon last year’s ranking expanded from a total of 7,019 stores in2011 to 7,190 stores in 2012, a 2.4 percent increase.
(Overall,our ranking this year lists 306 national retailers, which havea total of 7,232 stores in the city. This total includes the storesfrom four retailers we included on our list for the first time this year and also reflects a handful of retailers that shut down overthe past year.)Over the past year, the number of national retail store loca-tions grew in every borough but Staten Island, which had a 0.7percent decrease. Of all the boroughs, the Bronx experiencedthe largest percentage increase in the number of retail loca-tions (4.3 percent), going from 809 store locations in 2011 to844 in 2012. It is the second consecutive year of rapid retailexpansion in the Bronx, which had the second highest rate of growth (3.8 percent) of all the boroughs last year. Manhattan, which actually experienced a decrease in the number of storelocations between 2010 and 2011, registered a 2.6 percent in-crease this year. Brooklyn (up 2.6 percent) and Queens (up 2.1percent) also experienced gains in national retail stores overthe past year.
