“The mission of our Remarkable Independents recognition program aims to shine a well-deserved spotlight on local grocers who go the extra mile, day in and day out, to engage and serve their neighbors with a commitment to service, quality, value and integrity,” said WGB’s VP of Grocery Content Meg Major. “In addition, we are also proud to recognize the integral role independent grocery retailers play in their communities as great places to work, gather and give back.”
