Every IGA location in the U.S. is now a member of the National Grocers Association (NGA). There are 1,150 IGA stores across the nation.

“IGA and NGA have had a long-established relationship that over the years has allowed us to work together for the benefit of IGA’s independent retailers and NGA,” said IGA CEO Mark Batenic and NGA President and CEO Peter Larkin in a joint statement. “Our new relationship means that we will be providing IGA retailers with all the benefits NGA has to offer, including tangible resources related to advocacy, education and innovation.

“We look forward to seeing this partnership work to advance the cause of IGA’s independent retailers,” they added.

IGA, short for Independent Grocers Alliance, was founded in 1926, bringing together independent grocers across the U.S. to ensure that the trusted, family-owned local grocery store remained strong in the face of growing chain competition.

In 1982, NGA was founded on the philosophy of ensuring independent, community-focused retailers and wholesalers have the opportunity to succeed and better serve the consumer through effective policies, advocacy, programs and services.
