IGA: McKim’s IGA Shares Challenges & Successes Of Independent Retailing

October 14, 2022

Larry Williams has been in the grocery business for 52 years, and has been the manager of McKim’s IGA of Mount Vernon, Indiana, for well over half that time. Now Larry’s three sons, Brian, Matt, and Kevin, are carrying on the McKim’s legacy of quality customer service and community involvement, leveraging IGA programs to keep the store up-to-date and the shopping experience one to be proud of.

In 1991, the original owner of McKim’s, John McKim, called Larry to ask if he would be willing to help run the store. Larry accepted the offer, and the rest was history. For 31 years, Larry has worked to provide quality food and quality service to the residents of Posey County, Indiana.

Today McKim’s IGA is the quintessential family-run grocer. Larry was the store manager before taking a step back a few years ago and passing the reins to his son Brian. Larry’s other two sons, Matt and Kevin, are also involved with the store’s operations. Matt runs the produce, catering, and bakery departments, while Kevin manages the meat and seafood.
