Congratulations to our 2013 IGA International Retailers of the Year!  

 March 26, 2013 

 

Earlier this year we shared with you that three outstanding IGA Retailers—Tammy Bailey of Bailey's IGA, Mike Trask of Granite Falls IGA, and Jeff Zollpriester of Quality Foods IGA—will be honored this April as our 2013 IGA USA International Retailers of the Year at our Global Rally Awards of Excellence Banquet in Chicago. And now today, I have the pleasure of announcing that our winners' circle is complete. After a selection process taking place in their own countries, three more outstanding IGA Retailers will join our USA Retailers as 2013 International Retailers of the Year:

  • IGA Caribbean International Retailer of the Year
    Clifton Ling
    Ling & Sons IGA SuperCenter

    Oranjestad, Dutch Caribbean, Aruba
    Caribbean

      
  • IGA Australia International Retailer of the Year
    Cate & Peter Brodie
    Sisters Supa IGA

    Joondalup, Western Australia
    Australia

  • IGA China International Retailer of the Year
    Li Weilong
    Liaoning Xinglong Happy Family Business Group Co., Ltd.

    Shengyang City, Liaoning Province
    China

Together our six IGA International Retailers of the Year represent the best the grocery retailing world has to offer, and I am particularly proud to have them as members of our IGA Family.

Stay tuned to The Independent View for firsthand accounts of how our winners use the brand to succeed in their individual marketplaces, and look to the Alliance site for photos following the Awards Banquet on April 15.

Thanks,
