New Resources to Help You Serve During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Mar 26, 2020

As more state governments put stay-at-home orders in place, our stores are becoming some of the only businesses still serving the community. While IGA retailers and wholesalers are clearly rising to the cause, with no clear end in sight, IGA is developing as many resources as possible to aid members during this uncertain time.

These resources are available now:
