Here in Houston there haven't been new ones since the first crop appeared 8-10 years ago.

I was expecting the previous Wal-Mart design on that store like the one that was already open in my neighborhood.

In Atlanta, Kroger and Publix dominate the market; I've heard that they account for over 90% of the market share. Other than them, there is:
Ingles (in the outer burbs)
Wayfield
Trader Joes
Super Valu
Whole Foods
Fresh Market
Aldi
and various independent farmers' markets.

On St Simons, we have a Winn-Dixie (just renovated) and a Harris-Teeter (which I've heard is the most profitable store in their system; it has an amazing wine section).
