IGA was founded in 1926, bringing together independent grocers across the United States to ensure that the trusted, family-owned local grocery store remained strong in the face of growing chain competition.
Today, that entrepreneurial family business spirit is alive and well, and communities across the U.S. are being served by second, third and even fourth generation independent IGA Retailers. And IGA is expanding across the globe, as well. IGA’s Hometown Proud stores can be found in more than forty countries around the world.
In a time of cookie-cutter chains, IGA stores stand out as distinctively unique, just like the communities they serve.
Stop in your local IGA and experience shopping the IGA way—with a promise of neighborly service from people you know and trust.
Look for “The IGA Promise” in your store. When you see it you'll know that you’ve found the preferred shopping destination at the heart of your community.
