Hey there! I wanted to know whether there were better quality spices out there to use in my meals. I usually get the one from McCormick but started thinking about trying something else.

I buy almost all of my spices and herbs from Penzeys https://www.penzeys.com/ , Never had any problem with them. Since I live down here in lower Alabama I use mail order most of the time. They do have stores in a lot of cities across the country. We just got back from Memphis and of course I went to their store there. I think the web site link will show you the cities where they have stores.
While you are thinking about quality of spices, buy yourself a good pepper mill and some Tellicherry pepper corns. Once you taste the flavor of fresh ground black pepper you will never want that stuff that I refer to as sawdust that they sell in the super markets and call black pepper.

I buy all spices -McCormick - at the grocery store, but have also bought large plastic containers at Gordon Food Service (Trade East), as well as an Amish Pantry market.
