natural grocers anniversary

LAKEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Natural Grocers BB #:188775, the largest family-operated organic and natural grocery retailer in the U.S., celebrates its 67th anniversary August 18th – August 20th. Customers are invited to a three-day celebration offering Epic Savings, prizes, giveaways and more.


67 years ago, Margaret and Phillip Isely went door-to-door in Golden, Colorado educating their neighbors about nutrition and handing out samples of homemade whole grain bread. Margaret’s passion for nutritional education, natural foods and supplements spread throughout the community and soon they opened a store. This little house nestled within a neighborhood, was filled with the smells of herbs and spices and laughter among neighbors and friends. People lined up to talk to Margaret about nutrition and connect with someone who genuinely cared.

Today, the company, which is operated by the second and third generations of the Isely family, has 163 locations in 21 states and still prides itself on being a neighborhood grocery store where nutrition education, healthy food and planet-prioritizing practices are warmly offered.
