Mark and Trish Thompson

Our History

Since 1977 Mark and Trish Thompson have owned and operated your supermarket in Cuba City.
Mark was a store manager for a prominent IGA retailer in the La Crosse area.

Mark is UW La Crosse graduate with an Education Degree and Vocal Music major. Trish graduated
with a Business Degree from UW La Crosse also. Mark worked his way through high school and college
in the grocery business leaning from the ground up.

In 1977 he was given the opportunity to purchase the struggling IGA Store in Cuba City,Wi. For the next fifteen years they worked hard to upgrade the small 6,000 sq. ft. store adding a small Bakery/Deli Dept.
that was managed by Mark’s mother Therese, who also moved down from La Crosse. In 1992 they were approached by Sentry Foods Company to take over the Sentry Store in Cuba City. It was a huge move
mainly because they had to leave the IGA group, which was all Mark had known. After the purchase of
Sentry Foods many changes in the business started happening. Buyouts and bankruptcies of warehouses finally left Thompson’s as a Supervalu Store.

Finally in 2008 the Thompsons were able to break free from the 25-year franchise agreement that kept
them from choosing who they wanted as a grocery supplier. After looking at three different companies,
Mark and Trish choose Affiliated Foods in Norfolk, Nebraska. It was a long way from home but three
things cemented the deal.

1.) Affiliated was going to build a new warehouse in Kenosha, Wi.
2.) It is a Coop Company owned by the stores it supplies
3.) And most important – It was a IGA Supplier

IGA was coming home to Cuba City. The response from customers when the store became
Thompson’s IGA in August 2006 was overwhelming. Along with the IGA label Thompson’s IGA also offers ShurFine, ShurFresh, ValuTime, and Topcare labels giving our customers a great variety to choose from.
