H-E-B rated No. 1 grocer in the U.S.



H-E-B is kicking off the new year on top. The San Antonio-based grocer has been rated the number one grocery store in the nation followed by Trader Joe’s in second place and Amazon in third.

The annual Retailer Preference Index (RPI) evaluates 60 U.S. retailers on seven performance markers: price, quality, digital, operations, convenience, discounts/rewards and speed. The report was released this week by the data science firm Dunnhumby.

“H-E-B and our Partners continue to focus on making the lives of Texans better by serving our communities and customers with the best retail experience in our stores and online. H-E-B Partners (employees) are thrilled with the announcement and appreciate all the positive comments from customers on social media outlets” said Regina Garcia, H-E-B Public Affairs Senior Manager.

As in previous years, Dunnhumby revealed only the first quartile of finishers by rank. The 14 chains are as follows:

  1. H-E-B
  2. Trader Joe’s
  3. Amazon
  4. Market Basket
