Saving Money: Why People Aren't Shopping At The Grocery Store

There's a new trend in grocery shopping. More people are skipping the grocery store.

A recent study found that more than 75 % of Americans bought their food for the week, at least once, from non-traditional stores last year. These are stores that aren't solely food stores and sell many other retail items, like pharmacies or big box chain stores.

The most popular non-traditional grocer is Target. In second place - Walmart followed by Walgreens, CVS and Costco.

Also on the list - farmers markets and food stalls, Dollar Tree, 7-Eleven, Kmart, Rite Aid, Family Dollar and Starbucks

And, this trend was consistent throughout many generations - from Millennials to Generation X to Baby Boomers.
