Supermarket News released its annual list of the Top 50 Small Chains & Independents a couple weeks ago. Topping the list is PAQ, a California-based retailer that operates stores in Northern California and Hawaii. Lowe's Markets, based in Texas, was second, and California-based Northgate Gonzalez Market was third.
Redner's Markets was the top Philadelphia area company and was fourth on the list. Supermarket News ranks companies with annual revenues between $275 million and $1 billion by estimated sales volume for 2013.
The only other store from the Greater Philadelphia Market that made the list was Brown's Super Stores (ShopRite owner/operator). They were ranked number 29.
