Costco Wholesale has been chosen by the Canadian public as “Canada's Most Respected Grocery/Food Retailer” following a recent poll.

After more than a year and a half of unprecedented challenges providing groceries and food items to the public, Costco was rated the top national retailer against thirteen peers in a poll of 3,784 Canadians during September 2021. Other retailers at the top include Your Independent Grocer, Metro, Real Canadian Superstore and Sobeys.

"The global pandemic thrust these retailers in multiple directions over the past 20 months. From immediate consumer stockpiling and supply chain disruptions to their valiant front line essential workers and the pivoting of business/delivery operations for on-line and delivery services, every single one of these retailers truly deserves our respect," said Jeff Munn, executive director of the Canada's Most Respected Award Program. 

To be considered for this survey, candidate retailers needed to be Canadian-owned/operated and manage operations in at least four provinces.

The DART Insight and Communications "Most Respected Corporation Program" was launched on November 9, 2020.  DART I&C was founded by strategic communications‎ expert Victoria Ollers and veteran pollster John Wright.
