Fry’s Food & Drug Stores leads a new ranking of grocery chains with the highest loyalty based on visits per month.

inMarket, which gathers location data from hundreds of shopping and lifestyle apps, compiled the list.

On average, Fry’s shoppers visit 2.44 times per month, according to the ranking by inMarket. Others in the top five were Giant Eagle, Ralphs, Publix and Smith’s Food & Drug Stores.

H-E-B, Harris Teeter, Kroger, Safeway and Food Lion round out the top 10. All those grocers averaged at least two visits per month by their shoppers.

inMarket noted in its report that location may be a key factor in loyalty.

“Some grocery chains with heavy penetrations in urban areas tend to have higher loyalty metrics than their rural competitors,” inMarket wrote. “This could be because denser geographic areas incentivize more frequent trips.”

The rest of the grocery chains on the list were:

  • Vons
  • Stop & Shop
  • Albertsons
  • ShopRite
  • Key Food
  • Whole Foods
  • Winn-Dixie
  • Dillons
  • King Soopers
  • WinCo Foods
  • Schnucks
  • Wegmans
  • Giant Food Stores
  • Jewel-Osco
