The New Hampshire Grocers Association (NHGA) is the only state-wide trade association representing the voice of the retail food industry in New Hampshire. Our membership comprises both independent and chained retail grocers and c-stores, wholesale grocers, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, and other businesses that support NHGA’s Mission.

After 20 years of business and over a dozen different credit card processors, we’ve finally found a program that meets all of our requirements. John Howell, the program representative, is a true professional that is dependable, knowledgeable, and has consistently answered any questions I’ve had for him. Compared to other programs where we had a different rep every time we called, we take solace in the fact that we’ll be dealing with the same individual who knows me and my business. On top of that, the savings we’ve realized from switching have been substantial!

Credit Card Processing

I can’t say enough positive things about NHGA’s energy program. Unlike my last provider, Sprague Energy provides much more than just an energy solution. Bob Savary with Sprague Energy is a true professional who is knowledgeable, responsive, dependable, and offers exceptional customer service. He simplified a convoluted transition process due to my last provider. He created a custom solution for my business that has significantly reduced my energy costs and prepared me for future market fluctuations. Moreover, I am always informed of essential market and procurement intelligence to help me take control of my energy costs. In short, Bob is an energy consultant that understands my business and helps me to create a long-term energy strategy to brace against an ever-evolving industry.

I moved my workers’ comp and saved money over my previous policy. I would recommend that all grocers take the time to look at a quote. Workers Comp is a necessary evil, so why pay more than you have to. In addition, I am eligible for a dividend check each year based on the claims experience of the group. That has further reduced my business cost each year. The best part is, I do not sacrifice any service at these low costs. When an accident has occurred, the service to the business and associate has been professional and timely.

—Phil Tucker, Aldrich General Store
Worker's Comp
