The first Ingles store was opened by second-generation grocer Robert P. Ingle in 1963 and located in Asheville, North Carolina. The chain sells products with the Laura Lynn brand, named for Ingle’s daughter Laura Lynn, now Laura Ingle Sharp. She worked in advertising for the chain starting in the 1970s and has been a member of the board of directors since 1997.
In 1982, Ingles purchased a milk processing plant from Sealtest, which it operates as Milkco Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary. Two-thirds of Milkco’s business, which was later expanded beyond dairy to include products such as citrus, tea, and bottled water, is from food service distributors, grocery warehouses, and independent specialty retailers located in 17 states as of 2010. Ingles became a publicly traded company in 1987.
In the 2000s, the chain started building “Ingles Gas Express” gas stations with many of its newer stores.
In February 2005, Ingles Markets announced it would restate financial statements for fiscal years 2002 and 2003 and the first three quarters of 2004, to correct the accounting for vendor allowances and certain other items. The restatement was a significant factor in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issuing a Wells notice to the firm in January 2006, indicating that it might bring enforcement action against it. A settlement was reached with the SEC in April 2006 that did not require payment of a monetary penalty.
Following the death of Robert Ingle on March 6, 2011, his son Robert P. Ingle II became CEO.
In December 2012 and December 2013, the company collaborated with Eblen Charities’ St. Nicholas Project on what they called “Ingles Toy Store,” offering “toys, games, clothes and stocking stuffers” to needy North Carolina families.
Ingles also owns and operates Sav-Mor Foods, which includes eight locations in North Carolina and one each in South Carolina and Tennessee.
