Natural Grocers is relocating its Oklahoma City – North May store to a newly remodeled space on May 2, at 5903 Northwest Expressway in Warr Acres.

The current store, located at 7013 N May Ave., Oklahoma City, will close at 5 p.m. on April 29 to complete the relocation process.

Natural Grocers’ good4u Crew will kick off the grand relocation festivities at 8:15 a.m. with a $2,500 donation presentation to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma – its local food bank partner, followed by an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with the store manager and additional community leaders.

Natural Grocers will also donate 5 percent of its sales on May 2 to the Natural Grocers Heroes in Aprons Fund. Established in 2020, this nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization provides short-term financial assistance to Natural Grocers good4u Crew members or their immediate family members who have encountered economic hardship due to sickness, natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances.

Doors will open at 8:27 a.m. with giveaways, sweepstakes, sales and free samples. Customers will enjoy discounts of 25 percent throughout the entire store, May 2-4.

Natural Grocers has been proudly serving the state of Oklahoma since 2013 and is excited to be moving to our new location in Warr Acres,” said Raquel Isely, VP of Natural Grocers. “This was our third store in the region, and it enabled us to build a strong connection with customers. After almost 10 years at this location, we are ready to move into a bright, beautiful building only a few miles away. We believe our store in Warr Acres will further our passion for supporting the health of humans and the health of our planet, with that ‘neighborhood grocery store’ feel, you can depend on.

“We’re also thrilled to have several notable community leaders joining us for our festivities, including representatives from the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, our local food bank partner. We invite everyone to visit our new store, join in the fun and discover what makes the Natural Grocers shopping experience exceptional.”

What’s new?

The interior of the new store will be brighter, with a more contemporary floor plan. The company has upgraded the new space with sustainable building features and energy-saving innovations, such as non-toxic building materials and 100 percent LED lighting, for a lighter environmental footprint.

Grocers will feature an even larger selection of 100 percent USDA certified organic produce at the new Warr Acres store. From apples to zucchini, every piece of produce is free from Apeel, avoids cross-contamination with conventional/GMO items and grown without synthetic pesticides.

With over 5,000 SKUs, Natural Grocers offers the largest selection of vitamins and supplements, backed by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certification and ingredient authenticity.

Food bank partnership

Natural Grocers will partner with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for its “Bring Your Own Bag Program” to serve people in Oklahoma facing hunger. Each time a customer brings their own shopping bag, Natural Grocers will donate five cents per shopping trip to this organization.

Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation. Most people served by the Regional Food Bank are chronically hungry children, seniors living on limited incomes and hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. The Regional Food Bank distributes on average 50 million pounds of food each year through its network of more than 1,300 community-based partners in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma.

“Natural Grocers is a great long-term partner of the Regional Food Bank. The Bring Your Own Bag Program has had a tremendous impact on the fight against hunger in Oklahoma, raising nearly $90,000 over the past 13 years,” said Stacy Dykstra, CEO of the Regional Food Bank. “We are so thankful for Natural Grocers support and look forward to continuing to work with them to help provide meals to Oklahomans living with hunger.”
