Wegmans Wins Market Force's Best Grocery Store Chain in America for Third Consecutive Year
ROCHESTER, NY - We all have our favorite places to grocery shop—as a Sacramentan, born and raised, Raley’s is where it’s at. But on a national scale, America’s sweetheart Wegmans has captured consumers’ hearts. For the third consecutive year, consumers voted for Wegmans as their favorite American grocery chain, according to Business Insider. While the retailer tied with Publix last year, Wegmans nabbed the top spot for itself this year, pulling ahead of all of the competition, including massive rivals like Walmart, Target, and Whole Foods Market.
Consumer insights firm Market Force Information surveyed over 12,700 consumers, asking survey-takers to rate their favorite U.S. grocery chains off of characteristics like best value, fastest service, cleanliness, customer satisfaction, and likelihood of recommending the store to others.
And, like years past, reigning champ Wegmans once again earned high marks thanks to its specialty department services, including its deli, coffee shop, and bakery, as well as its ready-to-eat section and wide product variety, boasting up to 70,000 products (according to Business Insider, the typical store has around 40,000).
The full list of winners included:
- Trader Joe’s
- WinCO Foods
- Harris Teeter
- Sam’s Club
- Whole Foods Market
- Hy-Vee Food Stores
- Food Lion
- Shop Rite
- Winn-Dixie Stores
