The Red Bud Chamber of Commerce has started a new Business of the Month program to highlight chamber members and to share information about those businesses. The first Business of the Month is IGA. The original store, Schmitt’s Supermarket, opened in 1963. The current owner is TJ Norrenberns, who purchased the store in 1995, renaming it as Red Bud IGA. (IGA stands for Independent Grocers Alliance.) Norrenberns then remodeled and expanded the store. Store Manager Byron Burmester noted that the store currently has 40 employees. He also added that the store’s vision statement is, “To be the most joyful, prayerful and thankful grocery company on earth,” and that they are proud to be a part of the community. Pictured are some of the store’s employees with the Business of the Month sign.
