Natural Grocers plans to relocate its Guadalupe Street location in Austin, Texas, to the Triangle in a 14,000-s.f. space designed for the store’s growing customer base.
Set to open in July in the former OfficeMax space, Natural Grocers is the latest of several retailers who have announced openings at the Triangle. The popular hub is situated at the intersection of Guadalupe Street and Lamar Boulevard.
“Natural Grocers is the perfect fit for the Triangle and our vision for building on the community here with retailers who bring a high quality, individualized experience to their customers,” said Katie Grissom, director of merchandising and leasing for Asana Partners.
Asana purchased the Triangle in 2017 and has been working to build on the diverse dining and shopping opportunities already at the property.
“The Triangle is central Austin’s premier location for experiential retail,” said Kemper Isely, co-president of Natural Grocers. “Through our commitment to the health and well-being of our communities, we see a great opportunity to add value and be part of something special here.”
Solidcore Pilates studio recently opened at the Triangle. Coming later this year is Texas-based Merit Coffee.
“Austin’s reputation for healthy, active living is a major draw for the city,” Grissom said. “And the Triangle is a destination for that lifestyle whether you’re a resident or visiting several times a week to dine and shop here.”
