ratings just in...tj was way up there...I could not find the whole rating by consumer report...but here is one of the more descriptive summaries..
"At the top: Wegman's with a score of 88. The Rochester-based chain just inched out the next favorite, Trader Joe's, which scored 87. Others getting solid scores were Whole Foods, Costco, and Publix"
To those saying Walmart was a good choice...they were near the bottom of the list.
so there ya go, o best grocery store debaters :)
We apologize for the bad customer service you claimed to have received at TJ's in Philadelphia. If you had shopped at WFM, we have trained our staff to always offer our valued customers an apology for any issue. We have also stressed to feign sincerity in any apology, as we know an apology is an excuse for poor service. We also know our customer base is too stupid to realize this. In conclusion, we hope this ridiculous and glib statement will prompt you to our family of stores, because we view our stores as family and know what it's like when a family member goes bad. Keep in mind tho we really don't give a F if you shop with us as we know there's a sucker born every day.
The TJs in my immediate area are not very large and do not offer as many products as my local WFM outlets do. For me, TJs is a good place to buy pre-fab frozen dinners, but not produce or seafood. It was a few years ago, but the FROZEN swordfish TJs offered was souced from ASIA--I live in Boston. Speaking of salmon, I only buy it from WFM (and not the previously frozen or frozen offerings).
