Natural Grocers, based in Colorado, offers only natural and organic products on its shelves: shoppers will find only USDA-certified organic produce, meats from animals raised naturally without the use of antibiotics or hormones, as well as other delicious organic and natural groceries free of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners and hydrogenated oils. The grocery chain also offers an extensive natural dietary supplement and body care department, and a large selection of gluten-free and other special dietary need products.

For more than 55 years, Natural Grocers has honored the Isely family's founding principles to provide the highest standards in education and ingredients at every day affordable prices. Natural Grocers will not sell any foods that contain artificial ingredients such as colors, sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, hydrogenated oils or produce grown with synthetic pesticides. (See: "What We Won't Sell and Why.") Today, the awareness of the benefits of eating natural foods is higher than ever and continues to grow, helping Natural Grocers expand to 13 states and over 60 stores.

"We're excited to open our doors and get involved in Medford-- we know it is one of the best locations for Natural Grocers because the residents are committed to living healthy, active lifestyles," said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers co-President.  "Our shoppers look for affordable options to help their families be healthy.  We believe the people of Medford will be able to buy all of their groceries at Natural Grocers without breaking their budget."

Nutritional Coaching Natural Grocers also offers free nutritional health coaching - from individualized sessions, to meal planning, to general questions about nutrition and health. Every Natural Grocers supports a full time credentialed Nutritional Health Coach SM and all staff are trained to help shoppers find products and resources to support optimal health. The company also offers free seminars and speakers of interest to the community (schedule available in the store and online at http://www.naturalgrocers.com/nutrition/nutrition-seminars ).

Eco-friendly concept True to the Natural Grocers philosophy, the new store was built using green features such as energy-efficient motion light sensors, 100 percent post-consumer content tiles, high efficiency heat-exchange systems, polished concrete flooring and commercial-grade LED lights.

In addition, Natural Grocers checkout is 100 percent free of disposable shopping bags (no paper, no plastic). In the event customers forget to bring their reusable bags, Natural Grocers offers free recycled boxes or sturdy affordable reusable totes.
