Natural Grocers is relocating its Rio Rancho, New Mexico, store just 4.6 miles up the road to its new location  at 921 Pat D’Arco Hwy. on Thursday, Aug. 27.

The new store is bigger and will offer Rio Rancho residents and existing customers access to an even larger range of fresh, 100-percent organic produce, natural and organic groceries, the highest quality dietary supplements and everyday household essentials.

The Rio Rancho store has serviced this area for 10 years. The new Natural Grocers store is stocked up on fresh, pre-packaged bulk goods, only 100-percent organic fruits and vegetables, healthy snack packs, and sports and performance nutrition products to help fuel up for outdoor adventures in Rio Rancho’s numerous parks, hiking trails, bike paths and open spaces. Plus, Natural Grocers still will be carrying a variety of organic and natural pet foods that meet the same standards as human products sold in the store.

Although Natural Grocers has postponed Rio Rancho’s grand re-opening celebration for the safety of its customers and crew due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the store will feature grand re-opening specials from Aug. 27 through Sept. 30. These include discounts on 100-percent organic produce, pasture-based and humanely raised meats and staple items, such as bacon and bacon alternatives, free-range eggs, organic Gala and Honeycrisp apples, organic red and green seedless grapes and organic red Starkrimson pears.

As the nation’s largest family-operated natural and organic grocery retailer, serving customers since 1955, Natural Grocers carries its unique grocery shopping experience from the former location to a new, bigger building with new signage as well as world-class customer service, sustainable building practices, and neighborhood outreach through Nutrition Education and its partnership with Rio Rancho’s local food bank, Roadrunner Food Bank.

As a company that’s always conscious of its environmental footprint, the store includes energy-saving innovations and non-toxic building materials throughout.

Residents of Rio Rancho can count on 100-percent organic produce, 100-percent humanely and sustainably raised meats, 100-percent free-range eggs and 100-percent pasture-based dairy at the relocated Natural Grocers store. As always, the prepackaged bulk selections are 100-percent non-GMO with many organic options and the company’s grocery product standards prohibit hydrogenated oils and artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and preservatives.

Natural Grocers’ always affordable pricing and special discounts through {N}power, its free rewards program, ensure that the highest quality groceries are accessible for everyone.

The Rio Rancho store will have the same Nutritional Health Coach at the relocated store on staff whose services are free of charge to the community.

Natural Grocers’ highly educated NHCs support customers’ health and wellness journeys with free, one-on-one health coaching sessions, which are currently available via phone and video. The NHC also will host in-store nutrition classes and cooking demonstrations once gatherings are deemed safe again.

Residents of Rio Rancho and its surrounding communities can enjoy a clean and safe-as-possible shopping and working environment at the Rio Rancho location, due to the COVID-19-related policies and guidelines in place at all Natural Grocers stores.

The new store will open with modified store hours as follows: Monday-Saturday: 8 a.m. to 8:05 p.m.; and Sunday: 9 a.m. to 7:35 p.m. Additionally, there will be two weekly shopping hours exclusively for seniors (ages 60 and older), pregnant women and individuals with underlying medical conditions: Sundays from 9-10 a.m. and Wednesdays from 8-9 a.m.

“With our own vision to bring communities the best quality food at always affordable prices and leading the way as your 100 percent organic headquarters, we were drawn to Rio Rancho’s vision of leading the way as the best city in the Southwest,” said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers co-president. “We are thrilled that the relocation of one of our five New Mexico markets allows us to offer our services including healthy food options, free nutrition education, the highest standards in the industry and our inclusive culture to Rio Rancho’s community.”
