Spotlight on the Top 25 supermarket chains by sales

Although nontraditional and alternative channels have been growing their market share of grocery sales, traditional supermarkets still wield power in food retail.

While the overall Supermarket News Top 50 Retailers list includes all channels that sell food and grocery — including mass, convenience, drug and dollar, as well as grocery wholesalers —this year we’ve also broken out the traditional supermarket operators from that list for this gallery of the Top 25 by sales.

SN’s 2021 Top 50 list of North America’s largest food retailers and wholesalers and Top 25 supermarket chains have been compiled with research partner IGD, a leading UK-based analysis and insight organization for the food and consumer goods industry.
