Consumer Reports ranked Publix as one of the top grocers in the nation whereas Walmart ranked low on the list, according to a press release.
Publix ranked among other national grocers like Trader Joe’s and Wegmans with high ratings in clean shopping environments, good prices and quality products. The report surveyed 52 grocers total.
This isn’t the first time Publix has ranked high this year by shopper surveys. The Lakeland-based grocer topped the rankings released by the American Customer Satisfaction Index earlier this year.
Costco earned the highest marks for service, employee courtesy and checkout speed.
