Grocery Store Satisfaction

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, people are a lot happier with their grocery stores in 2024 than they have been in years past. Of course, the pandemic had a lot to do with that dissatisfaction. Not to mention inflation in late 2023...
