Five Super Supermarkets

What are your top five supermarkets, making note of any specialties or features that make them great, such as outstanding butchers, bakers or delis, for example? I'm particularly interested in those in N. Va-- but all are welcome. Here are the factors:

Quality- are the produce, meats, fish etc fresh and of good/great quality fairly consistently?
Variety- will I find interesting/unique items?
Price- Yea, Balduccis and DD are great, but rarely a great value. Who has good to great value?
Service/Cleanliness-- does the store appear clean and for higher priced stores in particular, is the service good?

There are at least two wide categories of general food markets: ethnic supermarkets and general "American" markets. Please list both.
