Details

The only Local, Home-Owned, Home-Operated Family Grocery Store in Lawrence.

Family and community are two consistent themes in the life of owner Jim Lewis. "I walked into Rusty's IGA at 9th and Iowa when I was 18 and applied for a job I needed to have while attending KU. Years later I had the opportunity to come back to Lawrence and purchase the stores." Lewis says, remembering his start in the grocery business.

"Lawrence still has a small-town atmosphere, and I know a lot of our customers personally. This is one of the things I like best about doing business in this community."

Checkers employs approximately 120 people. Several employees have worked with him since 1982, when he owned Rusty's IGA. "They have become like family. I feel very fortunate to have these relationships."

Now Lewis' passion is providing his customers the very best quality, local and fresh products at the lowest possible prices and having fun doing it each and every day. Lewis is proud of the fact that Checkers is the only Local, Home-Owned, Home-Operated Family Grocery Store in Lawrence.

Love this store! GREAT produce and friendly staff. So helpful that they will match competitors ads...makes it so I can do all my shopping at one store...and that one store is Checkers!

Shout out to Miss Denise, Miss Betty, and Miss Angela at the check-out who are always so friendly to me and my son (2 yr old). Great customer service by these ladies!
