Don't ever mention orgasms and bleu cheese in the same sentence again. I might have to skip lunch today.

a local family found a giant metal clamp inside an Aldi frozen dinner under the plastic wrapping. Hilarious for me, but terrifying for anyone who eats food there.

I've seen them in NC, MD and DE too. I think they're HQ'd in NC. I remember TV commercials in which the spokesman had a very thick southern accent when he'd say "Food Lahhn, Extra Loeew Prahces."

Hy-Vee. Sometimes Price Chopper. I get some stuff at Big Lots whenever I can. They're dirt cheap.

Where is Publix on this list? They pretty much killed Winn Dixie here in Atlanta and Wal-Mart put them in the Grave.

Most regional supermarkets aren't on the list.

How many truly national supermarket chains are there, though? I can only think of Wal-Mart (which doesn't have grocery stores in NJ, but probably do in most other states), Whole Foods, Trader Joes, ... I see Target on the list, but they don't do groceries in NJ either (as far as I know). Do they have groceries in their stores elsewhere? Are there other nationwide chains?

Chains like:

Shop Rite
Wegmans
Price Chopper
Stop & Shop
A&P
Food Lion
Winn-Dixie
Farm Fresh
PathMark
BELO
Publix
Ralphs
Kings
Hannaford
Kroger
Meijer
DeMoulas Market Basket

etc are all regional supermarkets, each with stores in only a few states. They're all very popular in their respective regions (except BELO maybe), but unless someone has lived in or traveled to an area frequently, outsiders probably haven't heard of most of them.

Yep, that's true.

I know Safeway is 'national', even if it's not Safeway in name everywhere. They're Vons or Pavilions in SoCal, Tom Thumb in DFW, Randalls in Houston, Dominicks in Chicago, etc.

Ralph's is owned by Kroger
