Our communities depend on their hometown IGA grocers to keep their loved ones nourished, healthy, and safe.

Suggested Message about Weekly Circulars and Sales during the pandemic:
Due to the global pandemic, demand for products is more unpredictable than we’ve ever seen before. To ensure product availability, some planned digital and print promotions have been suspended and purchase limits have been put in place. We’re still running as many deals as possible – just look for the signs on shelf and save. We appreciate your understanding as we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.
