For the first time, H-E-B was rated as the number one grocery store after a nationwide study.
According to consumer data science company Dunnhumby, the study surveyed 7,000 U.S. households in order to find out which of the top 60 largest stores have the "strongest combination of financial performance and consumer emotional sentiment."
The overall ranking evaluated the store's performance on seven pillars: price, quality, digital, operations, convenience, discounts/rewards, and speed.
This is a leap from last year's ranking, which named H-E-B as the fourth top grocery store.
