RELATED: All U.S. Retail Store Closings Planned for the 2014 Calendar Year >>

The sum total of all store openings scheduled to happen in the 2014 calendar year by the largest U.S. retail industry chains doesn't just equal U.S. retail industry growth, it also figures into the equation for overall economic stability in the U.S. and around the world.  The reason there is so much significance attached to the U.S. based retail and restaurant chain new store openings in 2014 is because those U.S. retail store openings are not just happening domestically, they are also happening internationally.

  As has been the case in the past couple of years, a significant percentage of new store locations planned by U.S. retail companies will be worldwide store openings. 

As the calendar turned to 2014, the retail chain at the top of the 2014 Retail Store Openings list is Starbucks, with a total of 1600 store openings planned.  All 1600 of those new Starbucks stores will be opening in China, and to be fair from comparison point of view, Starbucks isn't planning to get all of 1600 of its new China Starbucks locations open until the end of 2015. 

Within U.S. borders, domestic retail industry expansion in 2014 is all about discount stores.  Between Dollar General, Family Dollar and Dollar Tree, more than 1400 new discount stores will be popping up in cities and states throughout the U.S.  Using the original Walmart expansion strategy, many of the 2014 discount store openings will happen in smaller, underserved communities.

  Although Walmart has moved beyond this strategy and is focusing on conquering the largest markets around the world, the aggressive expansion of dollar stores could eventually be the downfall of the struggling Kmart retail chain. 

Starbucks, Wal-Mart, and Nordstrom are just a few of the U.S. based retail chains that have announced new store opening plans for the 2014 calendar year.

  Expansion in both domestic and international markets is being planned for several years in the near future by most of the largest U.S. based retail chains

What follows is a complete and ongoing roundup list of store openings that are planned to happen in the U.S. in the 2014 calendar year. Information for this store openings list comes from credible published sources that are available to the general public. BOOKMARK THIS PAGE!  This 2014 Store Openings roundup list will be updated with additions and changes as official and verifiable store opening information is made public. This 2013 Store Openings List was last updated on July 29, 2014.
