AWG Congratulates Nichols For Receiving TGCSA Retailer Of The Year

The TGCSA Retailer of the Year award is selected annually to recognize distinguished leaders from the grocery and convenience store operator companies that are members of the industry association. This recognition by the association is based on exemplary service to the food industry and the communities they serve and includes excellence in retail operations, association service, leadership and individual standards. 

“As a native Tennessean, former TGCSA board member and longtime friend of Jimmy Nichols, it’s such a pleasure for me to see Jimmy receive this award,” said David Smith, AWG’s president and CEO. “He has served the industry valiantly for almost four decades in various leadership roles. Though he has a full plate leading a sizable multi-state company, he finds time to help the overall industry, support the communities they serve and remain a bold ambassador for the local independent grocer.” 

Associated Wholesale Grocers Inc. is the nation’s largest cooperative food wholesaler to independently owned supermarkets, serving more than 1,100 member companies and over 3,200 locations throughout 28 states from nine wholesale divisions. The consolidated sales for AWG are $10.8 billion.

In addition to its cooperative wholesale operations, the company also operates subsidiary companies which provide certain real estate and supermarket development services, print and digital marketing services, health and beauty care, general merchandise, pharmaceutical products, specialty foods, natural and organic products.
