In Naples, where I am right now on vacation, there's a Walmart grocery store. Never seen/heard of such a thing.

I'm soooo glad I have an Uncle Guiseppe's grocery store 5 minutes from where I'm moving to on Long Island. No store compares. Gotta get some fresh italian food since we make that often, and that's the place to go.

Someone posted a map of some sorts showing the explosion of the Wal-Mart brand. If I recall it correctly there was only like 10 Wal-Marts in California and some states only had like 2 or 3

I generally shop at a couple of little local grocery stores (and I just discovered a new one not far from my job!), but buy some things at Target because they're actually CHEAPER than anywhere else.

Trader Joe's has surprisingly great prices for quality food.

I'm sorry but I didn't see the Whole Foods button. Why would there be a Wal-Mart and not a Whole Foods option? Where is the OP from? Must be a southerner...

I shop at Lund's (upscale) and SuperValu (regular, inexpensive, smaller supermarket) - both Minnesota name stores. I grocery shop at Target only for a water brand of theirs. We have Trader Joe's but now only in the suburbs; however, they are building one right in Saint Paul not too far from me. I and others can't wait.
