Other findings included the following:
- Walmart ranked highest among respondents in offering a one-stop retailer for all their needs, but the chain didn't score well in providing high-quality meat, produce, organic products and courteous staff.
- Publix scored the highest in offering an inviting atmosphere and environment-friendly policies.
- Sixty-seven percent of consumers indicated their grocer choice is primarily driven by its convenient location, followed by price (57%) and sales and promotions (52%).
- High-quality produce proved to be more important to shoppers than high quality-meat.
