What is going on with the IGA? Went in there yesterday, and the shelves were only halfway stocked. Is the store going out of business?

“Whats up?”

Beth, I found the same thing, but when I asked, the cashier told me they are getting a new owner, but that the present owner still hasn't left. I really don't know what that has to do with it. Seemed like a silly answer. I just told her I hope they get to keep their jobs.

I live a couple blocks from the Germantown IGA. My wife and I (newlyweds) moved to Germantown a couple years ago so we could raise our family here. We had previously lived in Kettering. We were anxious to support the local restaurants and the IGA, but we were surprised to learn that the store had no organic anything - and when we inquired we were told that the owner doesn't believe in organic. That's fine. We bought the majority of our groceries elsewhere but have always used this store as a convenience.
Over the past several months we have noticed the shelves getting very bare. I ran in for cat food and found that the 30 varieties they normally had in stock were reduced to only a few bags. I honestly wondered if there was some storm coming that I hadn't heard about or something.
Just the other day I noticed they put up a letter to the customers saying "we are not closing". I certainly hope they aren't - but they need to do something to be a better store.
When I go in there it seems like there are several employees in the front of the store just standing around. Most of them are not friendly - which certainly doesn't make paying the very high prices any easier. It seems to me that the employees should be given duties beyond standing around to enhance the store. And if there really isn't anything for them to do - perhaps some job cuts would help lower prices.
It might be time to ditch the IGA franchise all together. My wife suggested that they engage local farmers and sell local produce - which they are probably not allowed to do under the IGA guidelines - but if they want to stay in business - might be a good idea. They could rent the space to local farmers - the farmers could display their produce - and it wouldn't be any risk to the market either way.

There has been talk in the grocery business of Germantown IGA closing for months. There was also talk of Supervalu (Groceryland) closing in New Lebanon. The first sign of a store closing is a sharp decrease in variety and quantity of stock. A grocery definitely needs/wants product on the shelves to attract business. Groceryland has full shelves and lots of variety- the rumours are false. IGA has empty shelves and decreased variety and stock- the rumours are true. If they get a buyer to take it, they may stay open, most likely under a different name. They would do better to try a specialty store- a health food store would be nice.

My family has supported the IGA in Germantown for over 30 years. It was a welcome sight when it opened at its new location. We believe in supporting small locally owned businesses. It became evident at the end of 2011 that the store was beginning to fail. It is hard to understand why when it is the only grocery for a large rural area. The lack of goods on the (empty) shelves is a dis-service to the community. It is time for Ken Finke to come clean to his customers and employees and inform them as to what lies ahead.

Do you know what the store is going to be? It would be nice to put a Kroger across the street on Rt 4. I heard it was in the making a year or so ago. IGA is truly overpriced. I went in to grab something a few days ago and the prices on what they have left have tripled!

"has went to hell"?? LOL yeah, that's nothing to be proud of either in the grammar department!!!

Coming directly from a long time employee, Community Markets/Fresh Escape is purchasing the store, and they are looking to re-open by Nov. 1st. As of yesterday the old IGA is officially completely closed.
