PG Honors Outstanding Independents

Independent grocers are among the most inventive, innovative and exciting food retailers operating today, and the winners of Progressive Grocer’s 2020 Outstanding Independents Awards are at the head of the class.

PG presented this year’s awards at an exclusive reception and dinner on the second night of the 2020 NGA Show, hosted by the National Grocers Association in San Diego, Feb. 23-25.

Of the 18 total winners, 13 were able to attend the awards presentation, held at Fleming's in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter.

Award recipients posed for photos with PG Editorial Director Jim Dudlicek and Senior Editor Gina Acosta.

This year’s Outstanding Independents reception and dinner was sponsored by Revel Systems, a cloud-based point-of-sale solution provider, with U.S. offices in Atlanta and San Francisco.
