Out of the top 200 retailers on Fortune's 500 list for 2011, 23 of them are primarily retail companies - and none of them are local. D.C. is the home to some smaller retail companies. One category is automotive dealerships like DARCARS. The Washington Business Journal says though our area doesn't have as many big retailers based here, stores still are a major driver of employment. Giant Food, Target, Safeway and Walmart are among the area's top 50 employers.
