Supermarkets across the country have been rated and evaluated by gauging responses from over 24,000 people on 4 main issues: service, perishables food quality, price and cleanliness. All scores are out of 100 (with 100 being the highest). Interestingly enough,Wegman’s was the top supermarket in the nation, receiving a score of 88!
So we will show you the worst grocery stores starting with bad and ending with the worst! You can click on over to the FiscalTimes for the full article as to why these received the scores they did!

3. (this one is missing from the list….. I wonder if they got mad :))
2. Walmart Supercenter (69 out of 100)
AND #1 WORST. Pathmark (68 out of 100)
Well, the only one that affects us is Walmart Supercenter, but I probably would have rated it about the same anyway and try to not shop there if I can avoid it! Even with their new produce guarantee policy, I still have been very disappointed in their produce and tried it again after that new policy came out and decided that it still wasn’t any better. The produce still did not last very long and it is a pain to get money back, primarily because it is one extra thing on my “to-do” list!
So the stores I shop at the most are Kroger (Smiths in our area), Costco and Trader Joes and they must all be ranked higher!
What about your store, was it on the list and would you agree with the assessment?
