Rochester, N.Y. – America has voted, and Wegmans is the country’s favorite grovery store.

This is according to Market Force Information. The rankings place Wegmans in the top spot. Publix comes in a close second, followed by Trader Joe’s.

When it comes to explaining the store’s success, customers had a number of reasons.

“The environment for sure,” said Lucas Dupra. “Every time I come in here, everyone’s so friendly, and that’s why I just keep coming back.”

“Ease of shopping, and everything appears to be fresh and fairly priced,” said Ryan Tuke.

“Customer service, hands-down,” said Kim Howson. “It’s an absolutely fantastic store. You know every one you go into, you can expect the exact same thing, the same level of customer service, the same level of quality of the foods they put out.”

Howson also has a family connection to the company – her son works for Wegmans.

“Started out just pushing carts, now he’s managing a bakery,” she said. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful opportunity for the community. It’s just a wonderful place to shop – and to work, from what I’ve seen.”

The official start of Wegmans was in 1916. It has since expanded along the East Coast with 97 locations.
