The 2007 Market Scope includes market share for supercenters as well, taking into account the departments within those stores (grocery, perishable, some general merchandise and health & beauty care, etc.) that are comparable to those found in traditional supermarkets and super stores.

All information in the 2007 Market Scope is completely updated, revised, and 100-percent verified by Trade Dimensions' research staff, the company said. The intelligence is extrapolated from Trade Dimensions' Retail Site Database, an exclusive store-level database which currently comprises over 34,000 supermarkets.
