Natural Grocers Colorado

Natural Grocers will hold a grand opening Nov. 15 for a new store at 745 N. Lincoln Ave. in Loveland, Colorado, which will be the company’s 45 location in its home state.

Doors will open at 8:27 a.m. with giveaways, discounts, samples and sweepstakes.

“We’ve been serving the people of Colorado since 1955. We look forward to bringing nutritious food to Loveland and its surrounding communities at prices they can afford—one of the main principles Natural Grocers was founded on in 1955 and that we continue to uphold today,” said Raquel Isely, VP of marketing for Natural Grocers.

Food bank partnership

“We are pleased to welcome Natural Grocers to the Loveland community and as a continuing partner in our food rescue efforts,” said Amy Pezzani , CEO of the food bank.

“Each year, Food Bank for Larimer County rescues approximately 3 million pounds of food from local retailers – food that otherwise would end up in the landfill – so our food rescue partners are one of our most important allies in feeding Larimer County.”
