Wegmans Is America’s New Favorite Grocery Store

Wegmans has been voted America's favorite grocery chain—for the third year in a row!

We’ve always known that people love Wegmans. The perks for shoppers, happy employees and outrageously good customer service make grocery shopping a walk in the park! It’s now officially the country’s “Favorite Grocery Store Chain,” according to a survey of more than 12,800 consumers. In its grocery survey for 2018, Market Force Information asked about store cleanliness, checkout speed, item availability and more.

For many shoppers, it’s no surprise that Wegmans was crowned the best grocery store in America! A close second goes to Publix. (Last year, Publix and Wegmans were tied for #1.)

Honorable Mentions Worth Mentioning

Wegmans might be America’s Favorite Grocery Chain, but Publix provides some serious competition. They actually tied with Wegmans in terms of store cleanliness and item availability. Publix was also the highest-ranked chain when it comes to being able to find items in the aisle. Trader Joe’s earned the top score for its fast checkouts and courteous cashiers. The Value Leader was Aldi—no surprise there!
