retail news in context, analysis with attitude

IGA has announced that it will continue to advance its global presence by partnering with Johannesburg-based Unitrade Management Services - an independent management services group - to bring the IGA brand back to South Africa.  IGA originally moved into South Africa in 2002, but there have been no IGA stores in the country since 2008.

Under the partnership with IGA, Unitrade’s 110 Powertrade, Food Town and Best Buy grocery brands will adopt the IGA brand, and Unitrade has committed to growing its IGA store count to 250 stores within the next five years.
