41. Dominick's
Because it's close and I'm carless, and the Safeway store brand stuff is pretty decent - Jewel brand stuff generally sucks, and their meat is ecch. The worst thing about Dominick's is that when their produce is on sale, you'd best use it right away because it's usually ready to turn. You're right about the cleanliness - Dominick's is generally cleaner and better laid out than Jewel, IMO.

If I wasn't carless I'd shop Trader Joe's and Costco too. Sometimes I go up to Devon for Indian ingredients. If you can get past the shopping experience at Aldi you can find good quality there for much less than the other chains, but I don't shop them because their locations aren't convenient for me. I used to do Peapod but they screwed up two orders in a row so I dumped them.
