Jones & Co Grocer IGA, part of the Jones Retail Group, is challenging the status quo and leading a retail supermarket revolution by putting community first.

Founded by Tyrone and Leanne Jones, this group of award-winning supermarkets has been serving communities for three decades. Their motto? “Fresh, Local, Value.” It’s not just a catchy phrase; it’s a promise they deliver on daily.

“We’re uncompromising on our values,” says Tyrone Jones. “Our goal is to never give our customers a reason to shop elsewhere.”

Jones & Co Grocer IGA isn’t just about realising value for their customers, it’s about creating a shopping experience that big box retailers can’t replicate. Each store is tailored to its local community, offering a curated selection of products that includes both national brands and local specialties. In-house brands like Little Sushi Co and Mrs Jones Kitchen add to the unique offerings.

The brand’s success is reflected in its impressive list of accolades. The Mount Cotton location was named International Retailer of the Year in both 2021 and 2022. The Bloomfield store was crowned Australia’s best IGA in 2023, while the Queen Street Village location snagged the title of IGA Queensland Large Store of the Year just 16 months after opening.

Beyond the shopping aisles, Jones & Co Grocer IGA is deeply embedded in the local community. As one of the largest employers in the Redlands area, with over 500 local residents on their payroll, shopping at these stores directly supports the local economy.

Their commitment to community extends to philanthropic efforts as well. Through the Heart of the Community Foundation, they’ve raised over $250,000 in the last two years for local causes. This year alone their Charity Race Day and Golf Day brought in an additional $100,000 for The Cage Youth Foundation.

For shoppers in Southeast Queensland, particularly in areas like the Redlands Coast, Cleveland, Russell Island, and Mt Cotton, Jones & Co Grocer IGA offers more than just groceries. It’s an opportunity to be part of a retail revolution that puts community first.

As consumers become increasingly conscious of where they spend their money and the impact of their choices, Jones & Co Grocer IGA stands out as a beacon of community-focused retail. It’s not just about saving money – although they offer competitive prices. It’s about supporting local producers, creating local jobs, and contributing to local causes.

In a world where convenience often trumps consciousness, Jones & Co Grocer IGA is proving that you can have both. They’re inviting shoppers to reconsider their habits and experience a different kind of supermarket – one that’s rooted in community and committed to more than just the bottom line.

As Tyrone Jones puts it, “We’re excited to see how this journey continues.” For residents of Southeast Queensland, it’s an invitation to be part of that journey – to shop local, discover real value, and contribute to a stronger, more connected community.
