CashSaver Market will become IGA Plus Monday

The CashSaver Market in Vevay has announced that it will become an IGA Plus store as of this Monday, January 27th.

The CashSaver store in Versailles will also become an IGA Plus.

Store owner Eric Rabe said that he has been very happy with both stores, but that he also owns two stores in Ohio that are IGA Plus stores, so switching the Vevay and Versailles stores over makes it much easier on ordering and marketing of all of the stores.

"This allows me to run the same format over all four stores," Eric Rabe said. "It's kind of neat in Vevay, because it was an IGA store, and now it's going to go back to that."

Eric Rabe stressed that the change is not an indication of any problems or issues.

"I want to make sure that everyone knows that everything is fine and that everything is going well," he said. "It's just that we'll have one ad and one pricing, and there's a lot of advantages to doing that this way. We are very, very happy with Vevay."

Eric Rabe said that the IGA brands will be in the stores, and he also noted that the "Cost Plus" format - where 10-percent is added to the bill over the shelf price at the checkout - will go away.

Beginning Monday, the price on the shelf is the price customers will pay at check out.

The store will be called Vevay IGA Plus.

"Nothing will really change in terms of the variety of things we carry," Eric Rabe said. "Same meats. Same deli. Same everything. The only difference will be that we will have the IGA brand and items in the store, which a lot of people liked that and wanted that."

"In Vevay, I think it's a net-net," Eric Rabe continued. "I think everybody is going to like it. We're pretty excited about it."

The store will not be closed during the switch, and Eric Rabe noted that everything will be changed over and re-tagged in the evening, so the Vevay store will remain open to customers for its regular hours without interruption.

"The thing that we need to reiterate is this change is happening not because things aren't doing well, it's simply because we have more stores than what I'd planned, and we need to get them under the same concept and same banner," Eric Rabe said.

Eric Rabe purchased the former Vevay IGA store building in July of 2012, after the community had been without a full service grocery store for several months when the former owners closed the business unexpectedly.
