Could you please provide a list with the largest (or major/leading) retailers/distributors of TV sets in the United States?
Hello! Thanks for your question about television retailers in the United States. The short version is that Wal-Mart is the largest retailer of televisions in the United States, including Samsung and LG brands. Below you will find a deep dive of my findings.
Since it was not stated if "largest retailer" was being defined by number of stores or by annual revenue, I chose to go with annual revenue. This enabled me to include online retail giants such as Amazon and eBay. Next I conducted searches for the names of every single retail store I could find that sold televisions. Once I had compiled a list, I looked up the annual revenue for each company and kept only the top 15. Once I had that list, I went store by store to make sure that each retailer sold Samsung and/or LG products.
