What makes a supermarket great? Years ago, says Consumer Reports, the answer might have been low prices, checkout speed or variety. Now another consideration is top-of-mind: “fresh.”
When the typical shopper makes each of his or her 83 yearly grocery trips (running up an annual tab of about $5,400), he or she is demanding a wider than ever choice of healthy, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, as well as more organics and local produce. The clamor for “fresh” also extends to freshly prepared meals that can be taken home. So when Consumer Reports did its annual supermarket survey, it asked readers to rate their grocers on traditional characteristics such as service and cleanliness — but also asked them to rate the selection of local produce and the price of organics at their stores.
