You might be surprised to learn what chain is the most popular grocery store in Louisiana. In fact, it depends on what numbers you look at to find the favorite store in the Bayou State.

In a report from The Takeout, foot traffic was measured at grocery stores throughout the state and that was the primary factor in naming the top grocery store chain in the state. The report says foot traffic in grocery stores is up nearly 3% from a year ago.

In Louisiana, Winn Dixie wins on this front. That's pretty surprising since there are no Winn Dixie stores in the Shreveport Bossier area. In fact, Winn Dixie stores are concentrated in southeast Louisiana.
