The team at CenturyLinkQuote.com assembled a list of 18 online-only retailers. We defined “online-only” status as stores with only temporary pop-up locations or less than 15 brick-and-mortar locations worldwide.
From there, we used SemRush to discover which 13 online retailers had the highest search volume. We then used Google Trends to determine which store each state has searched for the most in the past year.
