Five Star Retailers

The results are in from our 2009 assessments and today it is my great pleasure to share with you that 213 of our IGA USA Retailers have achieved IGA Five Star status — the highest level of recognition possible under the IGA Assessment Program’s rigorous standards.

I'm pleased to recognize our Five Star Retailers for their accomplishments, and even more important in the long-term, to thank them for helping to elevate our IGA Brand through this wonderful achievement.
