Best and Worst Supermarket Chains

By Clark Howard

A new tally of supermarkets names a Northeastern regional chain as the best grocery store in the nation.

Consumer Reports has crunched the data and found Wegmans to be the top pick. For those who are not familiar with Wegmans, this is a store that has been consistently adored through the years by people who shop there.
