NEW YORK -- Wal-Mart was the top traditional retailer of any kind on Fortune Magazine's annual list of Most Admired Companies, but a number of other retail food merchants made the grade on various specialty sub-lists as the business magazine recognized hundreds of firms for being named companies worth admiring by businesspeople.
Wal-Mart appeared as number 10 in the overall ranking, followed by Target as number 12, Costco as 17, Walgreen as 41 and Tesco as number 42.
Walgreens won props as the number 1 most admired food and drug retailer. After Walgreen, other companies named as most admired, in descending rank, were Publix, Safeway, Kroger, and CVS; "contenders," with lower scores, were Delhaize Group, Royal Ahold, 7 Eleven, Rite Aid, and Albertsons.
