Omaha

Regional:
Hy-Vee
Bag N'Save
Fareway
No Frills

National
Trader Joes
Target
Wal Mart, including the neighborhood markets
Aldi
Bakers (now owned by Kroger, from what I know, Bakers in NE, Dillon's in KS, and City Market and King Sooper in Colorado are part of the same division of Kroger)

Lincoln NE
Regional:
Super Saver
Russ's Market (owned by Super Saver, and is the smaller, more neighborhood type store, while Super Saver is more of a warehouse type store.

Most of the smaller cities in Nebraska over 10,000 people have a Hy-Vee or Super Saver in Eastern NE. In Western NE, Safeway is the main store. Wal Mart Supercenters are pretty common statewide.

So which would win in a fight:
  • Wegmans; or
  • Publix?

I know there are passionate fans of both out there. I've never been to a Publix, but friends give them the same kind of rave reviews. Are the two comparable, or is one a clear winner?

Here in Charleston, West Virginia we have Krogers, Foodland, Save a Lot, Walmart, Sams Club, and Target.

In the Baltimore area there was Walmart, Target, Costco, Sam's Club, Giant, Safeway, Food Lion, Shoppers, and a local chain called Mars, plus fewer numbers of Weis Markets.

Florida is a supermarket desert. We primarily have just Publix in terms of traditional grocers with any kind of presence. There are a smattering of Winn Dixie and Sweetbay stores but not enough to compete statewide. Beyond that we have about a dozen Whole Foods, Trader Joe's just arrived with a few stores open so far and a ragtag group of independents beyond the big box national chain options such as Target and WalMart. It's sad having a monopoly because product options are somewhat limited and prices are higher.
