Natural Grocers Opening Wichita Store Feb. 24


Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage will open its second Wichita, Kansas, store Feb. 24 at 10520 West 13th Street N.

The Colorado-based grocer says it will provide the Wichita-Maize community with fresh produce that is only USDA Certified Organic as well as other healthy, affordable natural and organic groceries. The store will feature a mix of national brands and locally-grown, raised and manufactured products from Kansas.

“We are excited to become the newest ‘neighbor’ in a community such as Wichita-Maize, which is very food and health oriented,” said Kemper Isely, co-president of Natural Grocers and a member of the founding family. “Natural Grocers brings its customers natural and organic meat, produce and dairy from the highest quality producers. We also offer extensive complimentary, science-based nutrition education programs for making informed health and nutrition choices.”

Natural Grocers has 92 stores in 15 states, employing more than 2,000 people.

Company partners with Instacart for grocery delivery in Portland, Oregon

In related news, Natural Grocers has partnered with Instacart to provide grocery delivery service to customers in Portland, Oregon, in as little as one hour. Natural Grocers will be the fifth Portland-area grocery store offering delivery service through Instacart, which will deliver to residents and businesses in Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin, Lake Oswego and downtown Portland from Natural Grocers’ Beaverton store.

Customers can choose from the full selection of Natural Grocers’ local, natural and organic products on the Instacart marketplace. In addition to offering only USDA Certified Organic fresh produce, and natural and organic meat and grocery items, customers can find a large selection of vitamins and supplements.

“Our customers trust us to only source products that meet the highest health, safety and environmental responsibility standards,” said Isely. “By partnering with Instacart, we can offer Portland-area residents the same great selection, with the added convenience of same-day delivery straight to their home or office—which is especially valuable to those who are busy and don’t have time to make it into our store.”

Customers can place orders on the web or while on the go using Instacart’s iOS and Android apps. Instacart’s personal shoppers receive orders on their smartphone devices, handpick the items at Natural Grocers and then make the delivery.

“Instacart and Natural Grocers are both committed to providing the highest quality products and superior service,” said Nilam Garenthiran, head of business development and strategy for Instacart. “Given Natural Grocers’ unique selection of healthy living items, it’s exactly the type of store our customers have been wanting to see in the Portland area. For this reason and more, we’re excited to add Natural Grocers to the Instacart marketplace.”

Customers can open an account at instacart.com and get free delivery on their first order of $10 or more. Instacart also offers Instacart Express—an annual membership that eliminates delivery fees for all orders of $35 or more. The cost is $99.
