February 27, 2017
Scott McElroy, store manager of Price Less IGA in Franklin, was recently recognized as one of the nation’s top IGA retailers at the IGA Global Rally held February 10 – 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
McElroy was nominated as International Retailer of the Year Associated Wholesale Grocers, the IGA licensed distribution center for Price Less IGA. McElroy was among eight retailers throughout the nation nominated for IGA USA International Retailer of the Year.
“I was very humbled to be nominated for IGA Retailer of the Year,” said McElroy. “But, this recognition is truly a testament to our store team. I am very blessed to have caring and devoted team members who are committed to our customers and our community. In my opinion, that’s what sets us apart from the rest of the retailers in the area.”
From the eight finalists, Kurt Rodhe of Rodhe’s IGA Marketplace in Millersburg, Ohio, was named IGA International Retailer of the Year.
“Even though Scott was not chosen as the International Retailer of Year, simply being nominated is an honor in and of itself,” said Jimmy Stewart, district manager for Houchens Industries, parent company of Price Less IGA. “Scott is a model store manager and embodies the true spirit of a community-focused IGA retailer.”
