  • Spires IGA Market Celebrates 125 Years in the Community by Jim GriffinThe people of Lake Butler, Fla., and surrounding Union County are pretty familiar with Spires IGA Market's popular parking lot gatherings.

  • Why Every IGA Member Should Care about the California Drought by Phil LempertThe reason California's drought is important to every IGA—and in fact, every touch point along the agriculture supply chain—is because according to the California Department of Food & Agriculture, that region of the country supplies nearly half of US-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables to the rest of the country.
  • Look at all the Good You've Done with WWP! by Dave BennettEarlier this week IGA CEO Mark Batenic used this Perspective column to share with you the findings from Wounded Warrior Project's® (WWP) annual alumni survey of 21,000 wounded servicemen and women. While the long-lasting impact of the injuries sustained was certainly hard to take, Mark congratulated all of you for your part in raising more than $970,000 for the WWP cause over the last four years.
  • Securing a Healthier Future with IGA by Mark BatenicThink that health and wellness can be a back-burner issue for our stores and our brand? Consider this: Worldwide obesity has nearly doubled since 1980, and half the world is expected to be obese by 2050.
  • Feedback Leads to Consistency...And a Better Shopping Experience by Heidi HuffWe might work in the retailing industry, but every one of us is a consumer, too.

  • Getting to Know Your IGA International Retailers of the Year—Even Better! by Mark BatenicEarlier this year you had the opportunity to read the insightful commentary from our 2015 IGA International Retailers of the Year in The Independent View, but really there's just no substitute for hearing these retailers talk about their passion for IGA and their communities.
