Wegmans once again led the list of America’s favorite grocery stores, but this year Publix forced a tie for the top spot, according to a Market Force study.

Wegmans knocked Trader Joe’s, a longtime favorite, out of the number one position in 2016.

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, with Whole Foods at No. 10.

Market Force 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 Richmond-area stores includes Wegmans, Trader Joe’s, Aldi, Costco, and Whole Foods. Renovations are currently underway for 12 Publix Super Markets in the Richmond-area.

The first projected reopening is summer 2017, according to store officials.

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%
    10. Whole Foods: 61%
