I would because they're overpriced.

I shop at Fresh & Easy and Safeway. Fry's (Krogers) has very poor quality food, I don't go to Wal-Mart because there aren't any that sells groceries near me, I'll go to Target every now and then, and I tend to avoid all others.

organic type food store + indian market and oriental market, grow as much as I can right now too. I'd go to whole foods or trader joes if there was one here right now...I take my food pretty seriously and would probably be labeled by most in this region as a health nut :/

I buy groceries at Stop & Shop because they are the only place that has everything I want.

Kroger is not all over the country.

NJ doesn't have Wal-Mart or Target with grocery which is a-ok with me. (except the one 1 posted)

I buy a lot of sale items at Target. I'll shop at Price Rite (bring your own bag discount store) for most of my stuff. Even though I feel stop & shop is overpriced, I'll go there and get what I couldn't find at the other stores.

I go there too. It's definitely the cheapest around here. King Kullen and Waldbaums are a lot more.

Whole Foods mainly. But they're so far away that when I just need a couple of things I go to Kroger. But kroger's organic section is tiny compared to Whole Foods and I hate their tofu.

There is definitely a cross section of grocery stores/chains on this thread. I live in Oregon and have many choices when it comes to grocery stores. I am originally from Massachusetts and Stop & Shop has a monopoly to say the least there. In my area of Mass one either bought groceries at Stop & Shop or the one or two Shaws or you didn't eat.

I like having a choice of groceries stores and the competion and varied prices that come with that.
