 The consulting and research firm analyzed responses from 6,000 consumers, found that Amazon.com ranked No. 1 for providing an "excellent" customer experience, coming in with a ranking of 81.3%. A business qualifies for an "excellent" rating when their score is 80% or higher, Temkin said.

Also featured on the list were Costco, BJ's Wholesale Club, Walgreens, Target and Rite Aid, which respectively landed in the third, fourth, seventh, ninth and 10th spots. What's more, retailers took 15-out-of-20 top spots on the list.
