Publix bags Tampa Bay's grocery market

Data: Chain Store Guide; Note: Stores under the same brand name have been combined, e.g. Walmart and Walmart Supercenter; Chart: Axios Visuals

The Pub Sub will always reign supreme in Florida, but other grocery stores are competing for the bag too.

State of play: Publix is the most popular grocery chain in Tampa Bay, with about 40% of the market share as of last year, on par with the last two years.

  • That's more than $5 billion in sales, according to new data from Chain Store Guide, which tracks the retail and food service industries.
  • Walmart remains a solid second with 25% of the share, or $2 billion in sales.

The intrigue: Sprouts rejoined the rankings this year, surpassing Dollar General, Save-A-Lot and Aldi.

  • BJ's Wholesale Club, which ranked above Dollar General last year, fell behind in the rankings.
