Ritchies Dromana Wins World's Best IGA
Ritchies Stores are proud to announce that we won the IGA International Retailer of the Year 2019 Award at the prestigious 2019 IGA Global Awards held in San Diego, USA. This is a global award with thousands of IGA stores from all over the world competing. The Dromana store has become famous locally for the amazing range of fresh, gourmet, health and hard to find ingredients and local products making it a "foodies paradise".
Quoting our CEO Fred Harrison, “We have designed Dromana around the needs, tastes and lifestyles of our customers so they are really at the heart of the unique shopping experience we offer. The team has worked hard to build great relationships with our local community and our suppliers and the store stocks considerable ranges from local growers and producers,”
“We have an incredible team, loyal employees and a great local community whose needs are at the heart of our business. These relationships are the cornerstone of our success. This award is a result of the hard work and commitment put in by all the team that contributes to the success of the Dromana store.”
Ritchies Awarded Salvos "Others" Award
Ritchies were recently awarded the Salvation Army's "Others" Award in recognition of donations made over the last 25 years through our Community Benefit Card. This is a great honour for Ritchies. Giving back to our local communities is something our founder, Mr Thomas Ritchie, started 149 years ago and with the support of our amazing customers we hope this tradition will continue for another 149 years (or more).
