About Us

We are a three generation family-owned store. In 1951, Jean and Nate Hartzell opened a grocery store in Benton, Wisconsin. There they raised three children who each grew up working in the store. In 1974, Jean and Nate purchased this grocery store in Warren, Illinois. Their sons, Bob and Harry, later took ownership of the store. Bob's and Harry's children, too, worked in the store during their high school and college years. Bob and his son, Matt, now own the business, making it three generations of the Hartzell family who have owned and operated this store.

We truly are a “Hometown Proud” IGA store, proudly serving our customers, our own community of Warren and the surrounding communities. Our product line, cleanliness, friendly and efficient service, and our community support and involvement have earned our store the IGA 5-star retailer rating for many years.

Stop in and visit our store. Let the Hartzell’s IGA family serve you!
