"The IGA mobile app is an additional step in the development of our digital offering; it’s a veritable extension of and a complement to the in-store experience," explains Alain Dumas, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Digital Strategy at Sobeys Québec. "Our team has worked countless hours and we are proud to have called upon Mirego, an innovative Quebec company, to support us in this ambitious project."
