VALENTINE, Neb. — Henderson's IGA here “hangs its hat” on its beef offering, Tim Henderson, the store's owner, told SN.
As well it should. The retailer, winner of IGA's 2008 International Retailer of the Year award, is located deep in cattle country in this northern Nebraska town, in a county where there are nearly 100 cattle per person.
“We draw from a 60-mile radius,” Henderson said. “Valentine has a population of 2,800, and we are the biggest town for 120 miles in any direction.”
