Wondering where your favorite grocery store ranks compared to other stores?
Here's a list from Consumer Reports ranking 62 grocers nationally including Harris Teeter, Aldi, Publix, Lowes Foods, Food Lion, Walmart, Target and more.
You probably won't be surprised at the lowest ranked store on the list.

And the #1 store, Wegmans will be coming to NC in 2018.
Once again, Wegmans is at the top of the list. I can't wait for their Triangle area stores to open. And it is interesting to see Sprouts come in at number 11 ahead of Aldi and Harris Teeter. Poor Walmart just can't seem to move away from the bottom of the list.
According to CouponsInTheNews.com, "Consumer Reports surveyed more than 50,000 readers over a 14-month period ending last September, asking shoppers to rate their overall satisfaction with nearly 100,000 individual grocery shopping trips, on a 100-point scale. Among the criteria used to calculate the rankings are store cleanliness, prices, food quality, staff courtesy and checkout speed."
Are you surprised by any of the rankings?
