The U.S. has the world “most large grocery stores,” according to a report from consulting firm Mercer.
Mercer estimates the nation’s grocery market is worth $12.7 trillion, and it’s expected to grow to $13.5 trillion by 2020.
Mercer surveyed more than 100 grocery stores across the country to find out the world has the largest supermarket.
The list included 1,300 in the U.K., 3,200 in France and 1,200 stores in Italy.
The company’s study also found that the U,S.
and China are the top three markets for international groceries.
According to Mercer, the U of A has the third largest grocery store in the world with $2.5 billion in revenue, followed by Germany and Japan.
It said that China’s supermarket market is the second largest after the U., with a $1.5-trillion market worth $2 trillion.
Mercer said its survey of grocery stores was conducted in 2016 and that the numbers could change before 2020.
The grocery industry has been booming in recent years, with demand for food growing at an annual rate of 12.7 percent.
In 2018, the industry generated $2 billion in annual sales and $4.1 billion in gross profit.
