This is one of a series of reports presenting the findings of the 1933 
Census of American Business. The statistics were collected in 1934 by a field 
canvass of retail stores in every State, city and county in the United States, 
with funds provided by the Federal Civil Works Administration. They cover the 
operations of retailers during the year 1933. 

The reports are prepared under the supervision of Fred A. Gosnell, 
Chief Statistician for the Census of American Business, by John Guernsey, in 
charge of Retail Distribution. Assistance in the preparation of this report 
was rendered by William A. Ruff, Assistant Chief Statistician, and James 0. 
Reid, Retail Assistant. ^ 




ANALYSIS OF THE RETAIL CENSUS FOR 1933 



ACCORDING TO TYPES OF OPERATION 



(Chains, Independents and other Types) 



This special report of the Retail Census, a part of the Census of American Business, 
presents an analysis of the 1,526,119 stores enumerated in 1933 by types of operation. 

The following summary table shows the number of stores and sales by types of operation in 
1933 as compared with 1929:

Shown for each type, in addition to the number of stores, are data covering volume of 
sales, the number of proprietors, number of full-time employees, amount of payroll, average annual 
earnings of full-time employees, and total reported expense. The latter is exclusive of any compen- 
sation or return for the services of proprietors engaged in their own stores, usually in lieu of 
employees. 

In 1933 there were 26,000 fewer independent stores and 6,400 fewer chain stores than in 
1929. On the other hand there were 5,400 more direct-selling (house-to-house) retailers, 40 more 
mail-order houses, and about 10,000 more'etores ef other types, including leased departments, co- 
operatives, etc. 



1-B 

Factors in Sales Decline 

The sales of chains increased in relative importance to other types of operation during the 
four years since the previous Census. In 1929 chains did 20.0 percent of the total of all retail 
business of the country; by 1933 the ratio had increased to 25.2. Independents, which did 77.5 
percent of the total business in 1929, accounted for 71.2 percent in 1933. The sales of indepen- 
dents decreased 53.2 percent, whereas the sales of chains decreased 35.8 percent. 

The higher ratio of chain sales as a whole does not mean that the chains in all kinds of 
business have weathered the four years of depression better than independents. Much of the cause 
of the smaller aggregate decline in chain sales than in independent sales is the relatively smaller 

decline in the sales of those kinds of business in which chains prefer to operate food, variety 

and drug stores, and filling stations. 

In these four fields, which account for more than one-half of total chain store sales, 
the decline in sales between 1929 and 1933 (for chains and independents combined) averaged 34 per- 
cent, compared with 56 percent in all the other business fields together. In most of those kinds 
of business which experienced the greatest decline in sales volume, chains are a negligible factor. 

Direct-selling doubled in dollar volume, increasing from $93,961,000 in 1929 to $187,368,- 
000 in 1933. Mail-order sales decreased 52.6 percent; this is strictly catalog business and does 
not include the retail-store chains of mail-order houses, which are classified as chains. 

Utility-operated stores, almost entirely those of gas and electric companies selling 
household appliances for the purpose primarily of increasing the consumption of gas and electricity, 
decreased in dollar volume 53.4 percent, although remaining practically unchanged in number. 

Other Types 

The classification shown in this report as "other types" reveals practically no change 
in dollar sales from 1929 to 1933. It should be borne in mind, however, that the figures for the 
two years are not strictly comparable. In 1933 the brevity of the schedule made the identification 
of retailers-country buyers and of retailers-wholesalers extremely difficult. For this reason 
most of them were undoubtedly classified as independents instead of among "Other Types." To improve 
the comparability of the 1929 and 1933 data the 1929 figures for the two classifications named 
above were merged with independents. As a result the 1929 figures for "Other Types" as shown in 
the above summary table do not include an allowance for those retailers-country buyers and retailers- 
wholesalers that may have been classified with "Other Types" in 1933. Whatever discrepancy may 
exist by reason of this adjustment can have little effect on the conclusions, since the amount 
involved in "Other Types" in 1933 is only 1.2 percent of 1933 sales. Most of "Other Types" for 1933 
consists of leased-department sales and the sales of cooperatives. In 1929, the sales of leased 
departments amounted to $154,024,000 and of cooperatives $116,995,000. 



1-C 



Employment 



The number of full-time employees decreased 33.8 percent in independent stores and 17.3 
percent in chain stores. The number of proprietors increased 3.0 percent in independent stores and 
1.7 percent in those chains which are not incorporated. 

Total payroll decreased 48.9 percent in independent stores and 30.8 percent in chains. 
The decrease in full-time payroll was 52 percent in independents and 33.8 percent in chains. Both 
increased their part-time payroll, the former by 44.5 percent and the latter by 69.9 percent. 

In comparison with an average decrease in annual earnings per full-time employee of 24.9 
percent in all stores, employees in independent stores had their annual earnings reduced 27.5 per- 
cent and in chain stores 19.8 percent. 



Chains Gain in Five Kinds of Business 

In five kinds of business, chains increased materially the ratio of their sales to 
independents' sales. The chain ratios, or the percentage that chain sales bear to total sales of 
all stores in the same kind of business, are as follows:

In the department store field the 1933 Census includes about 100 more chain stores than 
in 1929. A few of these are large stores opened bji the mail-order houses and other chains which 
continued to expand after 1929; the balance represents principally the stores of a national chain 
classified in 1929 as a variety store chain, but which has changed the nature of its business during 
the intervening years until today it is classified properly as a department store chain. Its sales 
in 1929 were approximately $66,000,000; in 1933 $78,000,000*. 



These figures have been published by the company involved. 



1-D 



In comparison, the number of independent department stores decreased from 2,166 t'- 1,428. 
A factor in this decline is the minimum sales limit of $100,000 which is required of a store before 
it can be classified in the Census as a department store. 

The number of chain department stores exceeds the number of independent department stores, 
although their sales are little more than one-third of the sales of independents. With the excep- 
tion of a few sizeable stores of the mail-order houses, practically all of the large downtown de- 
partment stores of the country are independently operated and are owned locally except for 121 stores 
of the ownership groups. Ownership groups are financial mergers of previously existing independent- 
ly owned stores, without central merchandising and buying. Mere ownership does not classify them 
as chains so long as they are independently operated and their buying is not centralized. They are 
classified the same way in 1933 as in 1929. 

Combination Food Stores 

The trend toward combination food stores (grocery stores with fresh meat departments) 
was pronounced in the period between 1929 and 1933. The movement toward the inclusion of meat 
departments in grocery stores started with the smaller chains in the years prior to 1929, and the 
larger chains were testing it out in relatively few stores at the time of the 1929 Census. Since 
then it has become the predominant kind of chain food store. The increase in chain ratio, from 32.2 
percent in 1929 to 43.7 percent in 1933 without any change in ratio in the grocery field, reveals 
the transition of many chain units from grocery stores to combination stores without a corresponding 
movement to the same degree among independent grocery stores. 



FOOTNOTE S 
The following notes apply to reference numbers in the text as well as in the U. S. Summary 



table: 



(1) Includes no compensation for the services of proprietors working in their stores, 
in lieu of employees. 

(2) Includes leased departments, market and roadside stands, itinerant vendors and roll- 
ing stores, cooperatives, a few retailer-wholesalers (whose business is evenly divided between the 
two) and country buyers who also operate retail stores. The latter were difficult to identify from 
the 1933 schedule, and the comparison between 1933 and 1929 percentages is subject to qualification 
in that the entire 1929 percentage for retailer-country buyers is included for comparison purposes 
in the percentage shown for independents. Further details are not available from the condensed 
tabulations used in 1933. 

(3) Totals differ slightly from other tables because of an error in California in 
classifying certain apparel stores as department stores. The correction is reflected in this 
Summary, as well as in the California Type Report. 

One large national chain with total sales in 1933 (published in the press) of more thai 
$78,000,000 so changed the character of its business since 1929 that it now is classified as a 
department-store chain whereas it was a variety-store chain before. If for comparison purposes ii 
were eliminated from the 1933 figures, the proportion of chain sales would be 21.4 percent agains; 
16.7 percent in 1929 — conversely, the variety-store proportion of chain sales would be 92.1 perceni 
in 1933 against 89.2 percent in 1929. 



1-E 



(4) A discrepancy of $370,000 exists between the national totals shown here and the 
State reports, caused by an error in classification of certain stores in Montana and Wyoming. The 
correction is reflected in the State tables, but is not considered of sufficient importance to 
justify changing the national totals. 

(5) The totals differ slightly from other tables because of an error in Illinois in 
classifying certain radio stores as electrical appliance stores. The correction is reflected in 
this summary, as well as in the Illinois Type Report. 

(6) Restaurants and eating places in the 1933 tabulation include also lunch counters 
and refreshment stands in addition to restaurants, cafeterias and lunch rooms. The 1929 percentages 
reflect only the latter three kinds of restaurants and, therefore, are not strictly comparable, but 
the new basis is considered preferable for future comparisons, in order to distinguish eating places 
as such from drinking places. 



(7) This classification was not included in the 1929 Type summary (table 6) 
fore, no percentage figures for comparison with 1929 are available. 



and, there- 



IB) Hardware stores in this table include two business classifications, i.e., hardware 
stores, ard hardware and farm implement dealers. Since the 1929 type summary (table 6) included 
only the former, 1929 percentages are not available for comparison.
