A Madison business has been named the state’s Retailer of the Year.
The One Stop convenience store in Madison, owned by Todd and Heidi
Jorgenson, was named Retailer of the Year this week at the South Dakota Retailers
Association (SDRA) annual banquet in Pierre.
The Jorgensons were chosen for their exceptional customer service, dedication to the
local community and enterprising approach to business.
“The One Stop is a local landmark in Madison,” said Executive Director Nathan
Sanderson. “The Jorgensons operate an outstanding business and demonstrate a clear
commitment to their customers and community.”
The Jorgensons started their business 22 years ago in a small, 800-square-foot building
and overcame adversity when their store was burned three years ago. They rebuilt the
One Stop at the corner of U.S. Highways 81 and 34, and now employ 30 people.
“We consider our employees family,” said Todd Jorgenson. “Our community has been
very good to us and we always want to help where we can.”
They said they were honored to be chosen for the award out of all the great retail
businesses in South Dakota and thanked their family and the citizens of Madison for
their support.
The SDRA has presented the Retailer of the Year Award annually since 1982. It
recognizes a business owner or manager who is committed to running an excellent
business while making a positive difference in the local community.
