“It’s been awesome,” Store Manager Carol Langer said as she surveyed the Hawaii-inspired produce department adorned with decorative palm trees and leis. “We’ve definitely seen people coming out to take advantage of the great sales and free samples, and they’re excited to try products they haven’t tried before.”
Thank You for Shopping
Natural Grocers began in 1955, when Philip and Margaret Isely started their business with $200 that they had borrowed. Today, Natural Grocers, though publicly traded, is still family run. Officials say it maintains the same mission as when it started: to provide access to nutrition education and quality, healthy products at prices anyone can afford.
