Wegmans Wins Best Grocery Store Chain in America for Third Consecutive Year

Friday, June 15th, 2018

For the third consecutive year, 12,700 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.

In a survey conducted by consumer insights firm Market Force Information, consumers were asked 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.

Reigning champ Wegmans has long been a favorite 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 (the typical store has around 40,000, according to Business Insider) on shelves.
