Acme Markets reigns as the Philadelphia area's top grocer, according to a recent report from Chain Store Guide, a sales-tracking firm that examined 2021 grocery and liquor store revenue.

Yes, but: Albertsons LLC, which owns the Malvern-based grocery chain, might not hold the crown for long.

Zoom in: Albertsons is among the top four retailers in the U.S., alongside Walmart, Kroger and Target. It owns 77 stores in the Philly area, as of last year, per the data.

  • Dollar Tree, which also owns Family Dollar, had the most grocery stores at 252, but it ranked 16th on the list.
  • Meanwhile, Giant, with 64 local stores, and Walmart, at 25, did better on volume of products sold, according to the data. They held the No. 2 and No. 3 slots, respectively.

Of note: The following counties were included in the 2021 review: Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery in Pennsylvania; Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem in New Jersey; New Castle in Delaware and Cecil in Maryland.
