Study shows that consumers still prefer visiting supermarkets for groceries

Despite all the hype around online ordering and delivery services, a recent study conducted by TABS Analytics found that conventional supermarkets and Walmart are overwhelmingly the top destinations for regular grocery shopping.

Of the 1,000 U.S. adults surveyed, 75% said traditional grocery stores were the retail venues they regularly visited to buy food and beverages (more than six times per month), and 57% cited Walmart.

However, compared to last year, 2% fewer people named supermarkets and Walmart as the places they regularly shop for food and beverages, and 2% - 4% more customers named dollar stores, drug stores and discount grocery stores. Target, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods saw gains as well.

Just one in six consumers said they regularly shopped online for groceries.
