Which chain do you prefer for your shopping?

If you prefer to shop at a specialty grocery (such as Whole Foods) or a club store (such as Costco) select "other" and post it.

Yup. I haven't lived in Texas for over 6 years, but I know this one is not even close. HEB hands down.

I voted for HEB because that's where I shop most (it's the most convenient, among other things), but Central Market (also HEB, I guess) and Sam's and Costco are also on the list. Randall's, too, now that they've lowered prices - they've got some things I can't get at the other places.

Walmart because it is the closest and it wins hands down on price for what we routinely purchase.
Sam's is next if we have the money to buy in bulk.
Target on occasion only because their selection is very limited and their prices are higher than Walmart in general.
Kroger is the next closest to me and where I will shop on occasion, however I will ONLY buy what's on sale as their regular prices are ridiculously high.
Albertson's is not close at all.
Tom Thumb is high priced as well unless it's something on sale, but not overly convenient.

The rest are not in our area - HEB, Randalls, Brookshire, Fiesta.

HEB is all over the place here so it's convenient, but I don't really like them.

I voted for Fiesta. Those young Mexicana ladies that shop there make it quite a fiesta for ones eyes

Here in the Lubbock, we don't have HEB, but we have a very nice local chain called United that I think is just as good as HEB (but nothing like their Central Markets). They're moving into the Dallas market, and HEB is slowly making making its way here (they're doing things like donating to local charities, a clear sign of market experimantation).
