Let's be honest, being an adult isn't always the most fun. Here in Montana, there are bills to pay, errands to run, and meetings to attend. It can be a bit of a bore at times, and one of the things that a lot of people do not enjoy is grocery shopping.

Grocery shopping can not only take time, depending on your family size, but can be quite costly.

For some Montanans, a weekly stop at the store is satisfactory, for others, they find themselves stopping multiple times a week to pick up one or two items that we never seem to have enough of.

Now keep in mind, that these ratings are based on national grocery chains, so local and regional stores like Town & Country Foods, Rosauers, and Winco didn't make the list, however, some other grocery stores found in Montana did.

Stores like Sam's Club, Albertson's, Kroger, Walmart, and Whole Foods all showed up on the list.

Of course, while wholesale mega stores are lots of fun and offer all that you might need and more in massive quantities, there is still something to be said about the local grocery store that sponsors your kids' Little League and soccer teams.  Here in Montana, we have some fantastic locally-owned stores, that not only serve the community but give back in many ways.
