Get to know your favorite regional market.
Are you an Ingles devotee? Is it your go-to grocery supplier? If so, make sure you're taking advantage of all that Ingles has to offer by getting to know this much-loved regional market. Ingles is a supermarket chain headquartered in Black Mountain, North Carolina, with over 200 locations in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. It was founded by Robert Ingle, who opened the first location in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1963. It has been a Southern grocery destination for over 50 years. In the southeastern states, Ingles is a prime spot for fresh groceries at reasonable prices.
1. The Advantage Card
To know the Ingles Advantage Card is to love it. It offers in-store deals and discounts to frequent shoppers, providing savings across the store. You can also sign up for AdvantageMail, which gives you Ingles coupons for the items you buy most frequently and tailors the week's discounts to your individual shopping history.
2. Holiday Dinners
Want to avoid toiling in the kitchen this holiday season? Ingles has you covered. You can order holiday dinners, party trays, deli dinners, fried chicken, and rotisserie chicken from the Ingles deli, which provides you with fresh, crowd-pleasing food while saving you time in the kitchen. Order a deli dinner, and your choices will include a roasted turkey with cornbread dressing and home-style gravy; a spiral ham with green beans, sweet potato casserole, and cole slaw; and baby back pork ribs, cole slaw, baked beans, and potato salad, just to name a few.
3. Prepared Sides
If you have a busy week ahead, stock up on Ingles' pre-prepared sides to make weeknight dinners a breeze. These include salads, soups, sandwiches, mac and cheese, potato salad, and Ingles' fan-favorite rotisserie chicken salad. The brand's Gourmet Grape Chicken Salad has more than a few fans around the Southeast. And don't forget the self-serve bars. Some Ingles even have a whole section dedicated to chicken wings, which is a lifesaver come football season.
4. Ask a Registered Dietitian
When you need an answer to a dietary question, Ingles can help. With the "Ask a Registered Dietitian" feature on their website, they give shoppers access to Leah McGrath, R.D. Submit your questions about health, nutrition, diets, allergies, and Ingles products online to have your questions answered by McGrath. (She also has a podcast!) Plus, there's lots of helpful nutrition information onsite.
5. In-Store Vaccinations
You can also stop by your local Ingles Pharmacy for your vaccination needs, including your (and your family's) yearly flu jab. Ingles wants to help keep you and your family healthy in every way, every day.
