Why IGA?

The IGA Advantage

IGA Understands What's Important to the Success of Independent Grocers

Independent grocers are proud, friendly, entrepreneurial business owners. Retailing is in their blood. Many grew up in the business and now own stores in their second, third, or even fourth generation of service to the community. It's not getting any easier with new competition and formats, complex regulations, and expensive technology. It's tough enough to find time to solve today's issues let alone to figure out the way to a more secure future.

IGA Retailers Have the IGA Advantage

IGA Retailers face the same challenges as non-branded independents–but there's a difference–IGA Retailers are not out there alone. Sure they're still independents–but they start each day with confidence because they have the IGA Advantage.
