Our Stores

Food Center is a family-owned grocery store company serving the needs of its customers in the Sanford and Auburn, Michigan areas. After working for a large grocery chain for some time, Bob Meyette and Bob Lowell felt they could better serve the needs of their local community by opening their own independant grocery store. That’s when they found the Sanford location, and in the summer of 1973, opened the Sanford IGA. Shortly thereafter, in 1978, opened the Auburn IGA together.

After buying the stores from their fathers in 2006, Rob Meyette and Rob Lowell plan to continue the business of being “everything our customers need us to be.” Our customers tell us it’s not the name that matters nearly as much as the small-town service, convenience, and the fact that they don’t have to wait in lines.
