The Melbourne Supermarket That WON'T Pay Out For Charity

Community groups in Knox are being left short-changed after a Boronia supermarket failed to pass on charity donations.

The supermarket encourages customers to drop their receiptsĀ into a box for their preferred community organisations, with a percentage of spending to go to groups

For more than two years, groups including The Basin CFA brigade and Bayswater North Primary have said they have not receivedĀ a cent from the franchise store.

The supermarket has fired back at the groups saying that their owner Brad Munro had been sick and they promise to send new cheques out in the next coming weeks.

Mr Munro has gone on record to apologise and said it is ''100 per cent guaranteed' payments would be made.

IGA have said they have raised over $70 million for community organisations in 16 years.
