Testimonials

Join the long list of retailers who have made the switch to AWG, and it could prove to be very profitable! Take a look at what our members are saying about us:

"Currently I own four supermarkets in southeast Louisiana ranging in size from 10,000 sq. ft. to 30,000 sq. ft. Being a SuperValu customer from July 1988 to September 2012, I decided to switch suppliers to AWG and service started October 2012."

"Switching suppliers was the best decision I have ever made for my company. My profits and sales are better than I had experienced in the previous 25 years with the other supplier. The effect on my bottom line was like having another profitable store with no investment. Considering myself as an old school grocer, I believe it is important to have a supplier that stands behind their promises. AWG knows how to take care of business. I’m looking forward to future business with AWG!”

Bobby Lishman, 4 Stores

“Baker’s Management, Inc., operating 5 IGA Supermarkets in east central Ohio, highly recommends Associated Wholesale Grocers as a wholesale supplier. After several years of lackluster sales and low profits, the Bakers determined a change was required. We were looking for a distributor capable of providing us with the pricing and selection that we needed to maintain a strong IGA image in our stores. With over 900 IGA items available at a very competitive cost structure there is no question that we are now IGA Hometown Proud!”
Gary & Terri Baker, 5 Stores

“We are very pleased with our decision to partner with AWG. The expertise that they have provided has helped us run a more efficient and impactful organization. AWG possess all the tools to provide effective merchandising, assistance in store operations andprovide strong buying power throughout all aspect of our retail organization. Transparency is a word that organizations like to use but rarely do they ever truly mean what AWG actually is, at first you kind of are startled as to how this can be but in the end you realize they are 100% transparent in their operations. We have learned that we are all a team, fighting against the retail giants and trying to keep the independent grocer strong for generations.”
Jeff Fisher, 7 Stores

“During our due diligence while comparing programs, I came to the realization that the purpose of any business is to serve the shareholders. With AWG, I’m the shareholder. That’s a much different business model than my previous supplier! I have found, among AWG retailers, that there is a genuine excitement about the future and we have just finished the best 1st quarter in years and that makes us excited too!”
Bobby Sellers - Co-owner, 1 Store

“Thank you for introducing us to AWG and giving us the opportunity to join this organization. Having been supplied by a combination of four wholesalers in our 30+ years or operation, I can tell you that AWG provides the lowest cost of goods. If there is anything we can do to help you convert other retailers into becoming members of our co-op please do not hesitate to contact us.”
Greg and James Neumann, Valu Market
