New Mexico proud

Headquartered in Colorado, Natural Grocers expanded its southern roots to with the opening of its first store in New Mexico in August of 2003. The company added five more stores in the “Land of Enchantment” through 2020 and has been proudly serving New Mexico residents ever since.

It now operates stores in Albuquerque, Farmington, Las Cruces, Los Alamos, Rio Rancho and Santa Fe.

“My grandparents started Natural Grocers in Colorado back in 1955 with determination, friendliness, education and perseverance. Their dream was to build better communities with good nutrition and healthy living,” explained Raquel Isely, VP of marketing for Natural Grocers. “As our company expanded to New Mexico, with our first store in Albuquerque, we were warmly embraced by health-minded customers seeking quality natural and organic products at our Always Affordable prices.

“To this day we follow in the footsteps of my grandparents – we only carry products that are better for our health, our communities and our planet, so there’s no guesswork when it comes to wondering what a product is made of or where it’s sourced from. We’re a bit quirky and intentionally offer a smaller, more relaxed, family grocery store atmosphere. Our good4u Crew are knowledgeable and kind. We believe it’s these types of practices, quality products, our amazing customer service and affordable prices that have forged loyal customer relationships at our New Mexico stores for over 20 years.”
