Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage® which opened in Shawnee, KS in February is the state’s fifth location. Located at 13335 Shawnee Mission Parkway, the Natural Grocer motto is “A Store That Can Change Your Life.”

I have had the chance to shop at Natural Grocers and have been quite impressed.  If shopping for quality organic ingredients at reasonable prices is important to you, then Natural Grocers is certainly a store you must check out.

Natural Grocers will not sell any grocery product that contains artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or harmful trans fats. The meats in the store are all from animals that have never been given antibiotics or drugs. The shelves are filled with amazing food, products and organic produce for you, your family and even your pets, all at affordable prices. Check out what they won’t sell and why.

Each Natural Grocers store has a credentialed Nutritional Health Coach that can answer questions free of charge on special diet needs. They can also help you design a personalized supplement and eating program, or point you toward the products that support your health and fitness goals, whether you’re trying to sleep better or concentrate more. You can set up 1 -hour appointments for free for individual coaching sessions by stopping by or calling the store. 

Along with the offerings of events, seminars, speakers and cooking demos, Natural Grocers carries local products and supports local agriculture. Shoppers can look for products from over 30 Kansas companies. Natural Grocers is always looking for opportunities to bring in meat, produce and dairy from Kansas farms. If you are local producer or farmer check out the guidelines for submitting a product to the store.

 About Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage

Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (NGVC): Founded in Colorado by Margaret & Philip Isely in 1955, Natural Grocers was built on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high-quality foods and dietary supplements, along with nutrition knowledge to help them support their own health.  The family-run store has since grown into a successful national chain with locations across Colorado, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Missouri, New Mexico, Montana, Kansas, Idaho, Nebraska, Arizona and Oregon, and employs over 2000 people.  The company went public in July 2012. Isely family members continue to manage the company, building on the foundation of their parents’ business.  Natural Grocers’ popularity and success can be traced back to its founding principles: providing customers with high quality products at everyday affordable prices.
