Natural Grocers Makes Room For More Products, People
Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage here has been expanding – not just in terms of the number of stores, but with larger locations that accommodate more product and more space for community gatherings.
When the company first launched in 1955, its stores had only about 5,000 square feet of selling space.
"They were, and still are, very productive stores", explained Alan Lewis, director of special projects for Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, in an interview with SN. "But what has happened in the last five to 10 years is that the number of natural and organic products has balooned – there are now 25,000 products that have organic ingredients, and 100,000 products in the market that claim to be natural."
