Hate waiting in line? 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 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 Wegmans and Fareway stores.

The magazine says shoppers average 83 grocery trips a year and spend over $5,000 a year. It suggests shoppers use a store's flyer, coupons and loyalty card, compare unit prices and buy store brands.
