Natural Grocers Plans 66th Anniversary Celebration Aug. 12-14


In honor of its 66th anniversary and what would be co-founder Margaret Isely’s 100th birthday, Lakewood, Colorado-based Natural Grocers invites the communities it serves to a three-day celebration from Aug. 12-14. 

The nation’s largest family-operated natural and organic grocery retailer celebrates 66 years of nutritional empowerment, free nutrition education, its “good4u Crew” and its communities, the recently established non-profit organization, the Natural Grocers Heroes in Aprons Fund and much more.

Natural Grocers was founded on a dream to make a healthy and balanced lifestyle accessible and affordable for everyone. In 1955, co-founders Margaret and Philip Isely set out on that mission, going door to door with just $200, lending out nutrition books and samples of whole grain bread. Today, the company, which is operated by the second and third generations of the Isely family, boasts 161 stores in 20 states, providing their communities with high-quality natural and organic groceries, supplements, household essentials, body care, and fresh 100 percent organic produce, along with free nutrition education. 


Celebrating in Natural Grocers style

Infused with a birthday theme, the anniversary event offers customers the biggest sale of the year, free frozen treats, chocolate bars and limited-edition reusable shopping bags, 5,800-plus giveaways, including a 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, or $30,000 cash, contests and more.

Natural Grocers is donating 1 percent of all sales from Aug. 12 to the Natural Grocers Heroes in Aprons Fund, a newly established non-profit organization which provides short-term financial assistance to the company’s good4u Crew members during unanticipated hardships and emergencies;

Free nutrition education – Health by Chocolate – will be led by company nutritional health coaches where customers can learn about the nutritional benefits of chocolate and how high-quality chocolate in moderation may enhance food and support health. The class will be available starting Aug. 2 at naturalgrocers.com/anniversary.


Giveaways galore

A 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid or $30,000 cash, Peloton Bike+, Yeti coolers, Natural Grocers gift cards, Hydro Flasks, Apple HomePod mini, free groceries and swagare just a few of the 5,800 prizes Natural Grocers community members can win during the 66th anniversary celebration. To enter, customers need to fill out the Anniversary Sweepstakes form available at all Natural Grocers’ locations between Aug. 12-14. A drawing among all entries will determine the winners of the prizes. 

Every hour on Aug. 12, good4u Crew at all stores will randomly gift a Natural Grocers branded 20-oz. Hydro Flask to a customer at checkout.
