Partnerships that Work
IGA retailers have the support of the IGA Alliance, a unique partnership that includes leading wholesalers, and premier national brand manufacturers and service providers. Alliance partners work together to turn challenges into opportunities, creating more sales and profit potential for the Alliance as a whole--and especially for IGA retailers.
Tools for Success
There’s no question that shoppers are changing. On one end they’re paying for convenience, like cut fruits and vegetables in our stores, online ordering, and meal kit subscriptions delivered to their homes. On the other end, they’re paying for quality, like organically grown local produce and higher-flavor craft beers.
IGA’s job is to put smarter, more modern tools within your reach to create a shopping experience that is faster, easier and better than you could do on your own.
