directories & online services
The Directory of Retail Chains in Canada provides you with detailed information on retailers with 3 or more locations in Canada.
Our researchers compile ALL data directly from the head office of the chains. We connect with these companies by phone and email.
Print format Directory is published in December. ONLINE Access database is uploaded monthly.
ONLINE Access provides you with a combined database of retail and foodservice chains in Canada for 12 months. You can search, sort and print listings. You can download all head office contacts into an Excel spreadsheet file. Store location addresses and other non-contact data are not included. If you require other data we will prepare a custom tailored spreadsheet when you purchase or upgrade to the CUSTOM DATA SERVICE.
