(Newser) – Aldi doesn't need a $1.6 billion revamp to best competitor Whole Foods—at least when it comes to Americans' opinions. Aldi comes in at the No. 5 spot on Marketforce's list of America’s favorite grocery stores, with Whole Foods at No. 10. Marketforce polled nearly 13,000 Americans in March, asking them to rate their most recent grocery store experience and the likelihood that they would recommend that store to others. The stores were then given a percentage score. The top 10:

  1. Publix: 77%
  2. Wegmans: 77%
  3. Trader Joe's: 76%
  4. H-E-B: 69%
  5. Aldi: 68%
  6. Harris Teeter: 66%
  7. Hy-Vee: 65%
  8. Costco: 65%
  9. WinCo Foods: 62%
