Easily the best supermarket I walked into was the Jewel Ocso in Barrington, IL. It was big, but still able to find everything had everything you wanted and cleaner than a hospital. Worst has to go to Pathmark and Shoprite, they are bad.

In terms of a store where you can go in, find everything you want in stock and in great quantity, I would put Cub Foods as my favorite. The aisles are wide and the stores are clean. It's based in MN and is only in a few midwest states.

Other than Cub Foods, I really like Publix. They usually have everything in stock and the stores (at least where I lived) were clean.

Stores like Byerly's, Wegmans and Kowalski's are obviously the best looking stores, but it's too expensive to do your weekly shopping there. Those stores are only good for a quick run in to get a few items.

One word: Wegmans. The Asian Wokery RULES!!!!!!!

Our closest Wegmans (Mechanicsburg, PA) is like 30 mins away so we mostly shop at GIANT. Wegmans is more of a "go and get some Chinese food for a treat" kind of thing. The Sesame chicken, egg and spring rolls, sweet 'n' sour chicken, pot stickers, shrimp purses, dumplings, and lo mein are my favorites. Makes a great meal and it's the best Chinese I've ever had. Restaurant-quality food for sure!

I go out of my way to shop at Publix..I drive 20 minutes and pass several other stores to get there. I spent a few months in PIT on a trip for work back in 2005 and stayed in an extended stay hotel... shopped at Giant Eagle. Like that as well. Back home in Maine, Shaws is really nice.

I definitely agree with those who say Publix, Trader Joe's, and Aldi are among the best, and that Wal-Mart is one of the worst. I've shopped at Publix for years, mainly because I worked for them years back and their stores are very rarely wrecked despite the store being very busy. Trader Joe's is still a bit of a novelty for me, as there are not any close to where I live, so the only chance I get to go into one is if I happen to be in the area of a location and they're open (I drive past one every week, but never at the time they're open. If they opened up at 7 am instead of 9 am, they would definitely get folks on their way to work to come in and pick up stuff for their lunches.). We've been shopping at Aldi for about 5 or so years, as they've got good products at great prices. When we starting shopping at the one near me, you would maybe see 2 or 3 other shoppers in the store. In the last few years, the word has gotten out and there are times when all three checkout lanes are in use.



The one person in that article that said Winn-Dixie must have one helluva W-D where they live, as the ones they used to have here weren't all that great.

I'm actually surprised that nobody mentioned Kroger in either category. The Kroger nearest to me is one of the worst grocery stores I have ever been in. It's a small store compared to what they build these days (It opened up about 20+ years ago.) and despite several remodels in the last decade, it is not that great of a store. I actually try to avoid shopping there because I usually ending up walking out because I get so frustrated because the layout is so confusing and they don't have that great of a meat department (Prior to the last remodel, they had a pretty decent meat dept.). My last place I lived at, I would drive past this store on my way home, and unless I absolutely needed something (At 2 in the morning when you're on the way home from work, there's not too many shopping choices.), I would not shop there, choosing instead to drive to a newer one that was about 2 miles further from my place than this Kroger was.

I've never really been a fan of Wal-Mart when it comes to grocery shopping. About 8-9 years ago I used them because there was a Super Wal-Mart about a 10 minute drive from where I lived at the time, and my only other option was a run-down Kroger (A different one than the above mentioned location, but was about 5 miles away.) that late at night didn't seem so safe. Plus I would use this as an opportunity to shop for non-grocery stuff as well.

Publix in the southeast, and as a native of the Chicago area, Jewel-Osco is also great.

I'll also go out of my way to shop at Publix, nothing else in the Atlanta or Greenville area comes close. Stores are always clean, employees are almost always great, food is fresh and prices are good, and best of all, you don't need a stupid "bonus card" to get the deals.

For sure! Publix is easily the best regular chain supermarket I've walked into. My village of Key Biscayne only has a Winn Dixie, which is... beyond the pale (kidding, but it seriously is nowhere near as good). We've been driving to the mainland and doing our big grocery hauls at Publixes for a while now, and it's great.

I'm a fan... of course, I've only seen them in Minnesota.

Wal-Mart fails. Alas, I end up there often mostly out of necessity. But it's always dirty, no one is friendly, and it's always a miracle if I can find someone that speaks almost fluent english.

Publix rules for the fact that it's the only place that I can find guava jelly (bring on the MIA l/o's!)

I'm also a huge fan of Ingle's. That's kind of a Carolina grocery store, so I know when I see it that I'm home.

We used to have Cub Foods here in Oregon, but they were bought by or merged with WinCo. I don't really care much for WinCo. There are always so many people there and it can be dirty. Long lines at check out at all hours, even thought they are open 24 hours. Strangest thing. They do have a good bulk food section.

We do not have Publix or Aldi here, either. The two stores I really like here are QFC and Haggen. Both are clean and relaxed. QFC has a really good deli and bakery. Haggen has a salad bar, deli and bakery that are wonderful!

Greggarious,

For some reason Winn Dixie is the closest store to me too, and i'm on A1A... but its probably the nicest one I've ever been in. Winn Dixie seems to have lots of smaller stores vs. one big store per "neighborhood" as we see up here.

In South Florida, we really only have 2 options, outside of the Big-Box Stores... Albertsons recently just shed about 50% of their stores.

Back "home", Kroger is the big guy, and they make sure that everyone knows it. At least in my hometown (Decatur), they've remodeled or rebuilt every store. Eagle seems to have pulled out, Schnucks just hasn't been able to build a brand - although when they came in the store was very high-end, and then you have Wal-Mart and Aldi chasing the cheap crowd.

I personally have no choice... I can handle the Winn Dixie here because its not crowded and has what I want, and there's a good-sized Publix over at Oakland Park & US1.

In ATL I usually go to either Publix or Kroger just for the convenience factor. They are everywhere.

In MSY, I usually go to a place called Dorginacs...they have the best wine/liquor selection in the Gulf South basically...

http://www.dorignacs.com

...or Rouses, which is a local chain in Louisiana. Winn Dixie has nice stores in the MSY area but I use them as a last resort.

Generally I tend to give my $$$ to local chains when I have the choice.

 thumbsdown  to WinCo. Dirty and crowded. I'm not really a fan of the warehouse grocery stores.


 thumbsup  to New Season Market. A little pricier, but just what a grocery store should be. Basically a shrine to good food, with nice "scenery" at the one on NE 33rd and Killingsworth. I also like the large selection of organic and locally grown products.

Hey, if it's a nice one, why not? The one in my town gets poor marks simply because it's somewhat poorly stocked in comparison to the afore-mentioned supermarket of the gods Publix.

Oh, and if any Brits are trolling this thread: Waitrose is amazing! Admittedly, this is partly because every time I see one I think to myself for some reason that "Boutros Boutros-Ghali" sounds a bit like "Waitrose Waitrose-Ghali". Don't ask why!  Silly

I would enter my "Best and Worst" Grocery Store Choices but grocery stores seem to be so regional that I doubt if many people here would even recognise them. I hardly recognise any of the stores above except for the ubiquitous Wal-Mart.

Sorry if I sound like I'm trying to hijack the thread, but there is a fairly rich vein of "Grocery Store Etiquette" on the Internet. It might be more useful to discuss that topic?.

There still are Piggly Wiggly locations around here, they took over some of Winn-Dixie's old stores, and other locations have been around for years under several different names.

We still have a few around here, but they're beginning to retreat from the main parts of the Metro Atlanta. Some of the ones that are still open have been in the same spot for 20+ years and folks still shop there because in order to get to the nearest Kroger, Publix, or Wal-Mart, they'd drive right past the Ingles. You really tend to see them more along the fringes of Metro Atlanta and outside of Metro Atlanta (Same with chains like Food Lion, Bi-Lo, and SuperValu.).

We had them in the Atlanta area until about 7 years ago when they closed up shop here. I liked them as a kid, as my Mom would normally do the grocery shopping on Friday, and she'd wait until after we got home from school and she'd shop while my sister and I roamed around the store hitting all of the free samples they had.

Here in San Francisco;

The best:
Safeway

They always have great deals, open 24 hours, hard liquor is always marked down and they're the only place that has 2-liter bottles of tonic water for only 99 cents. 1.75 liter bottles of vodka for only $10.99. I can make dozens of vodka-tonics for under $13.00.
Safeway has everything.

Sunset Super
Excellent grocery store full of hot Asian spices and other ethnic foods from the Far East. All sorts of seafood and they have a huge bucket of live frogs.

Andronico's
Despite their expensive reputation, they do have sales and when mark down their prices, they are reall, really cheap. The best seafood and selection of free-range meats if you're in to that. Best of all is their beer selection. They carry just about every kind of micro and macro brew from around the world.

Trader Joe's
They sale a certain fine California wine from Napa Valley named Charles Shaw for only $1.99.  Cool


Worst:
Whole Foods - Super expensive boutique yuppie grocery store with snobby service, poor selection, terrible hours and poor selection of booze.

Molly Stone
Same as above.
