Natural Grocers organic grocery celebrates 67th anniversary

Natural Grocers co-founder Margaret Isely outside the first brick and mortar store in 1958.

Margaret and Phillip Isely went door-to-door in Golden, Colorado, 67 years ago, educating their neighbors about nutrition and handing out samples of homemade whole grain bread. Margaret’s passion for nutritional education, natural foods and supplements spread throughout the community and soon they opened a store. This little house nestled within a neighborhood was filled with the smells of herbs and spices and laughter among neighbors and friends. People lined up to talk to Margaret about nutrition and connect with someone who genuinely cared.

Today, the company, which is operated by the second and third generations of the Isely family, has 163 locations in 21 states and still prides itself on being a neighborhood grocery store where nutrition education, healthy food and planet-prioritizing practices are offered.
