American department stores will open more locations in 2017 than they did in 2016.
That’s according to a new report by The Wall Street Journal that said the number of retail locations in the United States will be 1,869,958 by the end of this year, or an average of more than 5,000 locations a day.
The Journal said that number would drop to 1.8 million by the end, a fall of 3,200 locations.
This year’s total number of U.S. retail locations is expected to surpass last year’s total number of 1,813,400 by 2019.
The reports of a new era for American department store openings came from an analysis by the Wall Street Journal that looked at the number of new stores opening in each state over the last year, as well as the number of stores that closed, as well as the number of locations that opened and closed in each state.
The study looked at how many retail locations were opened, closed, and re-opened in each of the 50 states in 2016 and the District of Columbia over the same time period.
In all, the journal found a total of 1 of 2 new department stores opening in 2017 and 1 of 2 stores closed in 2017.
“There’s a big difference between shopping at Walmart and going to a department store,” Dennis Egan, a professor of retail management at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told the Journal.
Egan also said that while new stores are the fastest growing part of the retail market, they are not the only part of the retail market that is growing.
“[They’re] a small part of retail but they are an important part of it, so I think that’s why they are important to look at,” he said.
However, the Journal found that a significant number of department stores will not open in 2017, citing the lack of an increase in the number or number of openings in the state.
More than 5.3 million direct sales employees will be laid off in the US by the end of this year, according to the U.
S Department of Labor and the Department of Commerce.
Last year, the Labor Department said that there were 17.5 million retail employees in the U. State, but the number is expected to fall to 17.4 million in 2019.
