Grocery Store Comparison

Whole Foods is now the largest grocery chain in the US by market value even though it has almost 8x fewer stores than Kroger does, which is its next largest competitor by market cap.  Since most of WFM's competitors carry a sizable amount of debt, it's a little more instructive to compare the group on an enterprise value basis.  WFM is still only the second largest market chain on this basis.
