We asked you this week to vote for your favorite grocery or convenience store, and the winner should surprise no one.
The Foodmaster on Austin Street (I know it will forever by Johnnie’s, but ‘Foodmaster’ is its official name) won with a solid 62 percent of the vote.
Bob Deveaux, the store manager, said he was excited by the news.
“I’d like to thank our loyal customers,” he said. I really appreciate it, That’s awesome.”
Boston Organics came in a distant second with 11 percent of the vote, and we should give a nod to the Market Basket in Chelsea, even though it’s not in town.
Reader Bette Task said she was a loyal customer there, and said it had the “best selection at the lowest prices anywhere.”
