Lidl is pleased to announce it was named a Top 3 Supermarket from USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Supermarket this year, beating out other retailers such as Publix, Trader Joe’s and Wegmans. The company was first nominated by a panel of relevant experts and then voted by the public over a four-week period.
“The feeling of success when you score an unbelievable deal is the experience we want for you every time you come into a Lidl store,” said Johannes Fieber, President and CEO of Lidl US. “Having the best and most enthusiastic shoppers in grocery is the ultimate reward for us! An enormous thank you to all the Lidl fans and Lidl Nerds who helped propel us to one of USA Today’s Top 3 Supermarkets!”
Lidl’s top 3 win comes shortly after being ranked a top grocer by Food & Wine Magazine for the second year, as well as the fastest-growing retailer in the National Retail Federation’s Hot 100 Retailers list. The 10Best Readers’ Choice Award contest launches new categories every Monday at noon, revealing each category’s 20 nominees. The contest is promoted across USA TODAY Travel Media Group’s digital and media products, as well as via social media.
