Editor’s Note: The study referenced in this article did not take into account how labor-friendly grocery stores are as a deciding factor. Trader Joe’s, which makes up the majority of this list, is currently under investigation by the National Labor Relations Board for illegally threatening employees prior to their vote to unionize. In response, the grocery store chain has sought to dismantle the NLRB entirely, arguing that the existence of an agency in charge of enforcing unfair labor violation laws is unconstitutional.

Nearly everyone shops at grocery stores, but the experience can vary widely (to say the least). Some visits are quick and efficient, while others can be frustrating due to long lines, unhelpful staff, or poor product quality.

A recent study by Solitaired aimed to identify the best and worst grocery stores in America by analyzing Google reviews from 3,000 stores across 100 cities. The study considered factors such as customer service, food quality, prices, and checkout speed.

Ultimately, one store in Arizona stood out above the rest, earning the title of the best grocery store in the country.


Trader Joe’s in Gilbert reigns supreme

The Trader Joe’s located at 1779 E. Williams Field Road in Gilbert has earned the top spot as the best grocery store in the country, according to Solitaired’s study. This store received an impressive 4.8-star rating based on 1,651 reviews at the time the study was published. Customers praise the store for its friendly staff, efficient checkout process, and high-quality products.

Yelp reviews also highlight the store’s excellent customer service and wide selection of vegan-friendly foods, such as tofu, soy dogs, and fresh produce. Many reviewers mention the clean, well-organized aisles and the pleasant shopping experience. The Gilbert Trader Joe’s also received praise for its consistent stock of unique and affordable items, which keep shoppers coming back.

With its stellar reputation and positive customer feedback, it’s no wonder this Trader Joe’s location has been recognized as the best in the nation.

Trader Joe’s dominated the list

Trader Joe’s dominated the list with 45 locations, led by the Gilbert location and one in St. Petersburg, Florida, scoring 4.8 and 4.7 stars, respectively. A Central Market in Fort Worth, Texas, also earned a high rating of 4.7 stars.

However, the presence of stores like Central Market and Monnettes’ Market in Toledo among the Trader Joe’s on the list indicates that smaller or less nationally recognized stores can also achieve remarkable levels of customer satisfaction.

Here are the top 10 grocery stores in America, according to the study:

  1. Trader Joe’s, 1779 E. Williams Field Road, Gilbert, AZ – 4.8 stars, 1,651 ratings
  2. Trader Joe’s, 2742 Fourth St., Petersburg, FL – 4.7 stars, 4,217 ratings
