Summary

  • In our first hour of research, we have managed to identify the top supermarkets for three of the states. There is a significant amount of information available online regarding the top supermarkets in each state. We have selected three different sources to determine the top supermarket. Most of the sources include only the top supermarket in each state. We have also included the best independent store in each of the three states we found for completeness.
