Going grocery shopping is not fun; many of us are trying to find ways to save, save, and save when we do have to go shopping. However, it's nice to know that one of the best grocery stores in the nation has 30 locations in Missouri.

There are no St. Louis location right now, but two might be coming soon. Otherwise, Hy-Vee will start to take over several Missouri locations. It's the third-best grocery store in the nation.

The Iowa-based store has 31 locations in Missouri and only 18 in Illinois (two in Quincy). I think the reason for the popularity of Hy-Vee locations in Missouri has a lot to do with the Kansas City Chiefs. Hy-Vee is a massive sponsor of the Super Bowl Champs.

Top 5 Grocery Stores

The top 5 grocery stores in the nation include according to Food & Wine:

  1. H-E-B - mainly in Texas
  2. Wegmans - located on the Eastern Seaboard
  3. Hy-Vee - Iowa-based store
  4. New Seasons - Portland's favorite
  5. Market Basket- located in New England

The other reason Hy-Vee seems to be popular among Missourians is that it's employee-owned and involves itself in the community. You can go into a Hy-Vee location here are buy QND and QHS apparel, you will see local produce and other items from other farms. This is huge for the store and of course the community.
