A Spotlight on Natural Grocers

Natural Grocers has been in business since 1955. They are a family company that has been built on great intent and integrity. From the beginning they established a foundation they refer to as the Five Founding Principles.

1- Nutritional Education  – 2 – Highest Quality Products – 3- Affordable Pricing – 4 – Commitment to Community – 5 – Commitment to Employees

Founded in 1955 by Margaret and Philip Isely with $200 and a dream that everyone should be able to afford health food and a healthy lifestyle. Margaret struggled with chronic health problems and the ability to afford the healthy foods and supplements she needed. Above all odds NG has expanded to more than 90 stores.

A few days ago I found myself across the street from my local NG store. I hadn’t been in there in a while and I had some free time so I decided to really take my time and walk the store.  I walked every isle slowly, taking it all in.

Some of the product I saw when doing my safari. You may already know of these finds of mine but I thought I’d share.
