Family-run Natural Grocers was built on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high-quality foods and dietary supplements, along with nutrition knowledge to help support their own health. The company operates 107 stores in 18 states. There's already a store operating in Fayetteville. Founded in Colorado in 1955, the company celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015.
Be sure to snoop around on their website. I love that the company desires to educate people about good food. One of the articles I read that was spot on was this one about choosing the best fats and oils. This one was about healthy on-the-go snacks, complete with recipe links when needed. If you have allergies, or are avoiding certain foods, be sure to check out this page with a GREAT list for substitutions.
Remember, if you're one of the first 60 people at the opening, you will receive a gift card for up to $100.
