Top Stores

Are you an avid shopper?  The March 2012 issue of Consumer Reports rates 10 major chain stores.  The Consumer Reports National Research Center surveyed more than 26,000 subscribers about their shopping experiences, both online and in store, at stores such as Costco, Kohl's, and Walmart.  The winner may surprise you!

Or, if you're thinking about buying a TV, check out the ratings for LCD and Plasma TVs.

The March issue also has reviews and ratings for:

  • Butter substitutes
  • Lightweight laptop computers
  • Interior paint
  • Vacuums
The "Cars" section includes articles on the Toyota Prius V, the BMW X3, the Range Rover Evoque, and the Jeep Wrangler.  Other articles are on appliance fires and "junk" health insurance plans.

Each branch of the Fauquier County Library has the print issues of Consumer Reports from 2009 up to the current issue.  The Find It Virginia databases have an index to the issues from February 1, 1976 to the current issue, and the full-text of the reviews from January 1, 1999 to June 1, 2009.  You can access Find It Virginia from any library computer, or from home with your valid Fauquier County Library card number.
