The latest retail report from the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based American Customer Satisfaction Index (ASCI) took the temperature of consumers, rating the customer satisfaction levels of both traditional and online retailers, including department and discount stores, specialty retail, drug stores, supermarkets and ecommerce retailers.

By comparison, Walmart placed last, with a score of 73, and Albertsons ranked just above that, at 75.
