Our Thoughts are with Those Affected by Sandy  

 October 31, 2012 

 

As we now well-know, Hurricane Sandy has had significant and in some cases devastating impact on many of the communities our dedicated IGA retailers serve: first in the Caribbean, then continuing on to the Appalachian Mountains, to the Great Lakes and up the Eastern Seaboard into Canada. Figures related to death tolls and damages continue to rise, and those impacted are now dealing with widespread flooding and crippling power outages that will no doubt send those numbers even higher.

As those of you affected by the hurricane try to get your businesses and your communities back on track, please know that the thoughts and prayers of the entire IGA family are with you. I've had calls and emails of concern from IGA family members in Australia, India, China, Poland, Russia and more. We all stand behind you, and as always, your resilience and dedication to the communities you serve make us proud.

Thanks,

Mark Batenic
