For the first time in four years, Trader Joe's wasn't ranked as the nation's best grocery chain. That honor recently went to Wegmans, which ranked ahead of Trader Joe's and Publix in a survey of more than 10,000 consumers conducted by Market Force Information.
Hy-Vee Food Stores ranked fourth, and Aldi was fifth. The top five chains are all privately held.
Costco ranked sixth, while Walmart ranked 15th, last on the list.
Although online ordering seems to be a hot topic and a fast growing trend, the survey found that only 5% of the people surveyed ordered online for home delivery in the past 90 days, while only 2% placed an order online to pick up their groceries in the store.
