I do most of my weekly shopping at Walmart, but go to Publix for my meat, although pricey, there meat cuts are better than most, and I don't mind paying a little more.

Publix because they have a great bakery, good sales, and friendly, helpful employees.

Walmart for the basics and then Publix for produce. I wish there was a closer Whole Foods. The closest one is in Sarasota, 40 minutes away. Hmmm..maybe I don't wish that on second thought. I agree with the whole paycheck thing. I'd probably get in trouble if they were too close

Definitely at Winn-Dixie. Publix is a lot more expensive imho and I can get pretty much everything I need at WD. I only go to WalMart if it's the last possible option. I hate them.

Mostly Publix, especially for their bakery, but since they opened a Sweetbay directly across the street from my local Publix, I go there too now.

I really like Sweebay's veggies and meat, but they are a lot more expensive than Publix.

I shop at a few places as some places don't have somethings I like.
BJs 60% I shop at BJ's because of cost and they have most of what I need,
Whole Foods 15%
Winn Dixie 15% (because its so easy to get in and out of fast)
Publix 10% (because its just not on my routes and its always jammed packed, once had to leave the parking lot because there were no spots available on a regular Sat.)

We use the USAF base commissary most of the time because we get brand name products at a lower price that the store named products.

We normally save about 35% on our purchases, our second choice is Publix because of the quality of vegetables, fruits, and seafood, our 3er choice is Wal-Mart...

Publix- because its everywhere! LOL I selected Winn-Dixie (on the poll) by accident. I don't shop there. In fact, they're really hard to find around here. I LOVE Whole Foods for certain, select brands that I can't find anywhere else (cleaning products and certain food and health items) but I don't do my 'everyday' shopping there.
