Question: What are the Best Grocery Store and Supermarket Retail Stores in the U.S.?
Since U.S. consumers visit retail grocery stores and supermarkets more often than any other type of retail store, a frequently asked question is about which grocery stores and supermarkets are the best. In April, 2012, Consumer Reports published the results of a consumer survey which rated more than 50 major grocery store and supermarket chains.
Answer: According to the consumers who responded to the 2010-2011 Supermarket and Grocery Store survey, the best grocery stores and supermarkets, in the opinion of the customers who shop there, are well known for their good prices, good quality, and good customer service. Consumers rated the grocery stores and supermarkets where they shop, and based on those ratings, Consumer Reports created scores and ranked all the grocery store and supermarket chains from best to worst.
