HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY FROM NATURAL GROCERS®

Enjoy deals and discounts with the Company that has celebrated mothers and strong, passionate women since 1955

LAKEWOOD, Colo., May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Moms have a special place at Natural Grocers®. After all, the leading family-operated organic and natural grocery retailer in the U.S. was co-founded by Margaret Isely – a nurturing, passionate, progressive mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. Natural Grocers will be thanking all the moms out there with Mother's Day deals, gifts, recipes and more, throughout May.

NATURAL GROCERS' ORIGINAL MOTHER: MARGARET ISELY

Happy Mother's Day from Natural Grocers: a company that has celebrated mothers and strong, passionate women since 1955.

 With the current nationwide store count of 162 locations, it might surprise some to know that Natural Grocers started sixty-seven years ago with one woman's quest for health empowerment. In 1955, shortly after the birth of Margaret and Philip Isely's second child, Margaret became ill. When conventional approaches did not provide adequate relief, she turned to the Nutrition Education mavericks of the time. With the implementation of eating nutrient-dense, natural foods and taking dietary supplements, she saw remarkable benefits. This became the foundation for a dream: that everyone should have access to nutrition education and live in a healthy, regenerating environment.

Borrowing $200 to help feed the family and put gas in the car, Margaret and Philip went door-to-door in Golden, Colorado, lending out books on nutrition and giving out samples of whole grain bread. They would return a week or so later, discuss nutrition and take orders for supplements, bread, and other natural nourishing whole foods. Margaret's passion spread throughout the community and the original store, (still operating) opened circa 1958, on the now iconic, West Colfax Avenue.

Margaret's zeal continues as Natural Grocers seeks to empower healthier communities through knowledge, access and world-class customer-service all over the United States. Additionally, women continue to have a strong leadership presence within Natural Grocers.[i]
