The Worst Grocery Store Butcher According To 23% Of People

While going to the grocery store and heading over to the butcher for this week's meat might seem straightforward, there's more that can go behind selecting the right cut. We've talked to a butcher at a national grocery store chain who revealed the meats you shouldn't buy, and we've also broken down the best and worst cuts of meat to purchase.

There's also a lot of services that your local store's butcher might offer that you aren't aware of. For example, next time you stop by, ask your butcher if they can have any bones that you can use to make a flavorful stock or see if they can help you pound cutlets or grind meat.

But whether you need your butcher to help you with something that's a little more complicated or just need to swing by for some fresh meat, you'll want to go to high-quality stores. So it helps to know where not to go. Mashed conducted a poll with 587 respondents based in the United States to learn people's thoughts on which grocery store has the worst butcher.

Respondents said Sam's Club has the worst grocery store butcher

Though Sam's Club has plenty of fantastic items that you should try, a plurality of survey participants agreed that the butcher isn't its best feature. Nearly a quarter, 23.34% of poll respondents, said that Sam's Club has the worst grocery store butcher out of the options, which also included Kroger, Costco, Meijer, Publix, and Whole Foods.

Kroger, Meijer, and Publix weren't incredibly popular when it came to their butchers, with 20.10% of respondents saying Meijer had the worst butchers. Publix received 19.08% of the votes while Kroger had 17.72%.

So which grocery chain should you go to for your butcher? Based on this survey, you should try Costco or Whole Foods. A mere 12.10% of poll respondents said Costco had the worst butcher, and Whole Foods only had 7.67% of respondents' votes. But before you head over to Whole Foods, make sure you know which 365 products to buy and which to skip.
