Progressive Grocer: Isom IGA Reopens in Kentucky

April 4, 2023

Isom IGA grocery store in Isom, Ky., has reopened its doors after devastating floods shut it down last July. After nearly nine months of repairs, the store has planned several events to commemorate its return to the Letcher County community, including a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5. Independent Grocers Alliance (IGA) CEO John Ross will be among the many special guests in attendance.

Ahead of the rebuilt store’s official debut, Isom IGA held a soft opening on Saturday, April 1 at 7:00 a.m.

Following the floods, Isom IGA was deemed a total loss by the insurance company. The 16,000-square-foot store, which opened in 1973, was the only full-service grocery store in town, with the next-closest grocers 12 miles away.
