Publicly Traded Department Stores

Includes Multi-line Retail Stores

List of Publicly Traded Department Stores Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

The common theme amongst all of these stores is they sell a wide variety of merchandise. The specific types of merchandises the companies offer varies between companies as one store might offer more home furnishing and apparel and another might have more of an emphasis on home appliances. One thing is for certain, there is not a shortage of total items to choose from if you walk into any of their stores. Clothing, accessories, cosmetics, electronics, home furnishings, jewelry, kitchen supplies, toys and watches are a few examples of the merchandise you might find in these public company’s stores. Another common theme is that while there are a few smaller-sized companies in this group, most of the companies fall into the mid and large-cap categories.
