The report was based on responses from over 75,000 people. Consumer Reports’ survey asked questions regarding cleanliness, price, food quality and variety, checkout speed and staff helpfulness, selection of healthy options and locally produced foods.

The majority of the other top spots went to regional retailers, with the number one rank going to Texas-based grocer Central Market. The second place spot went to Wegmans, which serves the mid-Atlantic and New England regions, and third place was Heinen’s, which is located in northeast Ohio and Chicago.

The only national chains to break the top ten were Trader Joe’s coming in at fifth and Costco at 10th place. Other popular national chains topping the list were Publix at 11th, Sprouts at 20th and Aldi at 23rd. Even with the recent Amazon takeover, Whole Foods came in at 54th.
