The list of the fastest-growing retailers this year tells a story of consumers’ growing affinity for fast-fashion, specialty grocery items and apparel.

STORES Hot 100 Retailers list, published annually in the August issue of STORES magazine, consists of retail companies that reported the greatest increase in domestic sales between 2011 and 2012. All public and private companies with more than $300 million in sales were eligible for the list, which was compiled by Kantar Retail.

“With the worst of the recession behind us, retail has dramatically changed the way it responds to customers’ complex needs and wants,” said STORES Media Editor Susan Reda. “Today’s fastest-growing companies recognize shoppers’ desire for a relevant and personalized shopping experience and deliver products that speak to their unique sensibilities when it comes to lifestyle and fashion.”

Jacksonville, Fla.-based Bi-Lo tops the list following the acquisition of the remnants of the Winn-Dixie chain in 2011. Indicative of a condensing grocery market and a growth in specialty grocery stores, Sprouts Farmers Market (3) and The Fresh Market (10) also placed in the top 10 this year.

With plans to increase its store footprint in China and the United States in the coming years and with a full e-commerce launch imminent, No. 8 H&M joined the Hot 100 list for the first time. Sales at U.S. stores increased 20.7 percent from 2011, and the number of operating domestic stores increased 15.5 percent during that time as well.

Specialty apparel continues to heat up in the retail industry. With revenue increasing 63.2 percent from 2011, Michael Kors comes in at No. 2, up one spot from last year. lululemon athletica (4) and Under Armour (5), also known for their loyal fan bases and unique product offerings, mostly maintained their spots in the top 10 from last year.
