Grocery Store Ratings

How many of you like to grocery shop?  Even if you don't, you might want to check out the grocery store ratings in the May issue of Consumer Reports.  Out of the 52 chain stores rated, Wegmans scored the highest, with high scores in cleanliness and service.  Other area stores in the top 10 are Trader Joe's (2), Costco (5), and Harris Teeter (6).

Planning to have a nice, neat lawn for the summer?  Check out the ratings for lawn mowers, lawn tractors, and string trimmers.  This issue also includes tips on how to have a nice lawn without too much work.

Other informatice articles in May's Consumer Reports include medical devices/implants, student debt, and comparisons between several different small sedan and subcompact cars.  Also, check out the ratings for the best bagels (Dunkin'Donuts came in first), the best toilet paper, and the most reliable tire gauges.

Each brach of the Fauquier County Public 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 Public Library card.
