  • Stronger Event Means Bigger Sales for Nestlé & IGA Retailers by Heidi HuffThis past December IGA and Nestlé partnered to bring you a Hometown Proud Performance Insights offer that froze out the competition and upped the ante on Performance Insights results.

  • The Power of Local by Peter LarkinAs the new Congress pursues common sense legislation to classify full-time work under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as 40 hours per week per month, not the current 30 hours, I am reminded that IGA grocers—and their NGA colleagues—are a powerful presence on this critical issue.
  • Five Star: Setting the Stage for Success by Doug FritschIGA stores' image and identity are based on a unique principle: providing an exceptional shopping experience that includes being responsive to individual shopper needs. It's an extraordinary point of differentiation in an industry dominated by impersonal chains, and one that makes IGA stores stand out as the Hometown-Proud, community-focused choice for shoppers.
  • Congratulations to our 2015 IGA USA International Retailers of the Year! by Mark BatenicChoosing which of these finalists would become our 2015 IGA USA International Retailers of the Year was extremely difficult—especially since we heard from employees and shoppers alike that each of these retailers delivers on the IGA Promise of personalized customer service and Hometown Proud commitment in every possible way.
