As far as organic-forward grocers go, Natural Grocers has got it going on. The retailer has taken further steps to dominate the market on its home turf. The Colorado-based retailer will soon open its fortieth store in the state in Pagosa Springs on December 18, securing even more of the Colorado market.
The grocer represents a growing movement towards healthier eating, and offers its shoppers 100-percent free-range eggs; 100-percent pasture-based dairy; GMO-free pre-packaged bulk products; and groceries with no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Natural Grocers is dedicated to providing consumers with affordable, high-quality foods and nutrition knowledge to support their own health, a press release states.
The opening of the new store will feature several activities, sweepstakes, and more to welcome the local community to its new retail option. Throughout the opening celebrations, the retailer will host a Grocery Giveaway Sweepstakes to select nine lucky winners who will win free groceries in the form of Natural Grocers gift cards ranging in value from $10 to $100 dollars each week for six months. Even those who don’t win the top prize have a chance to walk away with some serious swag, including a free gift bag containing a breakfast recipe with all the necessary ingredients and a Natural Grocers kitchen set with an oven mitt and utensils—but only the first 100 customers are eligible.
