Chart du jour: Our favorite grocers

Data: Chain Store Guide; Chart: Axios Visuals

Walmart and Harris Teeter remain Charlotte's top grocers — though both lost market share from 2022 to 2023 while grocers like Food Lion and Publix grew theirs.

Why it matters: Supermarket chains are fighting for customers' dollars at a time when inflation has been pushing grocery bills higher.

Zoom out: Inflation is changing how many Americans shop for groceries, with more people buying store-brand items and shopping at discount stores, the Associated Press reported earlier this year.

By the numbers: Walmart commanded 24.6% of the local grocery store market share in 2023, down from 25.7% in 2022, according to Chain Store Guide, which tracks sales data.
