When it comes to grocery stores, Wegmans, Trader Joe’s and Costco are the best, a new Consumer Reports survey has found. Walmart was the worst.

Publix and Sprouts, which do not have Pennsylvania locations, also ranked highly.

Consumer Reports looked at overall customer satisfaction, including prices, selection, food quality, store cleanliness, employee friendliness — even checkout wait time.

The Consumer Reports survey was of 27,208 people and based on 48,076 trips to the grocery store, the independent product-testing organization said.

The full report will be in the May issue of Consumer Reports.
