CHICAGO — IGA here said Tim Henderson, owner of Henderson's IGA in Valentine, Neb., has been named 2008 USA retailer of the year. Henderson's father Jerry was a previous winner of IGA's retailer of the year award. In introducing him, IGA said he is never satisfied and is constantly "dreaming up new ideas to advance the IGA brands — from an outdoor produce tent sale to hiring a popular in-store chef and installing a state-of-the-art music system, [he] obviously knows a thing or two about balancing local hometown pride with 'big city' ideas." Henderson is a customer of Affiliated Foods Midwest, Norfolk, Neb. He joined two other IGA members who were previously named IGA international retailers of the year — David Scally of Ballina Siupa IGA, New South Wales, Australia, and Edith Cox, of Graceway IGA In Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.
