Galaxy Food Center is a voluntary ad group consisting of more than 150 independently owned supermarkets located in seven states. Galaxy started in 1979 with the purpose of enabling independents to compete with chain stores.
Galaxy works by combing all 150+ stores together to have buying power as one. This enables the lowest possible cost for independent stores, which in turn, allows the store to have the lowest possible retail prices for our customers.
Galaxy is mainly supplied by MDI, along with Piggly Wiggly, IGA, Lowes Foods, and Compare Foods. MDI began as a family-owned business in Hickory, NC, and has now grown to over ten states, supplying over 600 stores, and employs about seventeen hundred people.
