Abstract: The purpose of the study is to rank the Russian regions by the technological development of retail trade. The components of the technological development of retail trade are justified in the article; a method for calculating particular and general indicators of the technological development of retail trade in the region is proposed; the Russian regions are ranked based on the proposed indicators, the regions are grouped by the level of technological development of retail trade; and the regions representing “best practice”, as well as the regions that require the improvement of trading technologies are revealed. The ranking outcomes indicated that trading technologies in the regions of Russia were developed unevenly and insufficiently in most regions. The online trading development is the most relevant area of the technological development of retail trade in the Russian regions. Out of the leaders in the ranking, the Tomsk and Novosibirsk regions demonstrate the best practices of the technological development of retail trade, which can be used in other regions of Russia. The regions of Russia that require the improvement of trading technologies primarily include the Republic of Dagestan, the Chechen Republic, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the Republic of Buryatia, the Karachay-Cherkess Republic, the Republic of Kalmykia, the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, the Sakhalin region, and the Kabardino-Balkar Republic. Besides, Sevastopol and the Republic of Ingushetia are the problem regions.
