  • Orcas Island IGA—Taking Care of Community by Jason LinnesAs the only full-service grocery store on an island of 4,500 permanent residents 100 miles north of Seattle, we want to make sure that we're providing a shopping experience that meets the needs of every person on this island—and for us that's a wide range.
  • Foothills IGA—Little Things Mean a Lot! by Jeff DowningWe have all the major chain competitors surrounding our store, so our business philosophy is simple: We need to be the best we can be at all times. That means fast, friendly service in a clean, safe environment; competitive pricing on the top 1,500 items; being involved in the community; and going out of our way to do the little things that make a difference in our customers' shopping experience.
  • Columbus IGA—Putting People First by Paul MatovichWe've been serving Columbus for 40 years and we've seen the town and the county change drastically. Cattle ranches dominated this area, but now most of the ranches are gone and many towns are suffering. We've been lucky because mining came in and created jobs, but even so, our store is seen as an anchor in a community that still struggles.
  • McMaken's IGA—Paying it Forward in Every Way by Bill PriceOur store is the only grocery in a small town, but within five minutes you can find every kind of competitor you can imagine, from Walmart to Dollar Stores to other independents. With that kind of competition, we feel like we have to do everything that they are doing and more. That means pricing on par with the competition, treating customers like they're family, and giving back to the community.
  • Wagner's IGA—An Ingrained Commitment to Community by Wally WagnerWagner's IGA has been in business serving West Central Ohio for three generations, and has been IGA since 1953. Our business was founded on principles that we still practice today—personalized customer service, quality products and commitment to community—but if there's one thing that has made Wagner's IGA what it is, it would have to be our longstanding focus on community.
  • Blanton's IGA—Building a Better Place to Work and Shop! by Hal BlantonWhen Supervalu Tacoma was licensed as an IGA wholesaler in 1993, we didn't have to think long about becoming IGA. The beliefs behind IGA—having friendly, well-trained staff, a focus on personalized customer service, quality products, and maintaining a connection with our customers—were already a part of our culture, we just hadn't put a name to it. When we adopted IGA we became "Hometown Proud," and suddenly both our store team and our community understood why we were different.
