YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — Consumer Reports subscribers say their biggest peeve at grocery stores is the shortage of open checkouts.

They don't like cluttered aisles, either. Or out-of-stock specials.

The Yonkers, N.Y.-based magazine asked subscribers to rate their grocers and answer questions about their shopping. More than 24,000 responded.

The readers were high on the national chains Trader Joe's and Publix.

They also like Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans and Boone, Iowa-based Fareway.

The magazine said shoppers average 83 grocery trips a year and spend over $5,000 a year.

It advised shoppers to use a store's flyer, coupons and loyalty card, compare unit prices and buy store brands.
