Lakewood, CO—Natural Grocers has announced an ice-cream themed 3-day celebration commemorating 65 years in business with sweepstakes, contests, giveaways and more at their 159 locations across the U.S. At the celebration, which kicks off on August 13, customers will have ample opportunities to engage in a socially distant way, including with virtual demonstrations, a photo contest, and as well as to score prizes and rewards, including a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek, price discounts, free frozen desserts, and limited-edition reusable bags, according to a press release.
Natural Grocers got its start in 1955, when owners Margaret and Philip Isely, went door-to-door selling whole grain bread and loaning out books on nutrition to neighbors to help educate on healthy living. Today, the grocery chain spans 20 states and works to empower local communities to take charge of their health and purchase sustainably produced foods.
“As the second and third generation of Iselys to operate Natural Grocers, we are honored to preserve the legacy our parents created as leaders in the organic and natural food industry,” said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers Co-President, in the release. “Since the beginning, we’ve been rooted in health and have looked toward our Founding Principles when making business decisions that impact our Crew and our customers. In turn, we have been embraced by our communities and for that, we are thankful. We are excited to celebrate sixty-five years of healthy living with our valued customers.”
In addition to the sweepstakes and giveaways, the event will feature:
Food Bank Fundraiser
To honor the company’s Founding Principle of “Commitment to Community,” Natural Grocers will donate 1% of all sales on August 13 to community food banks. Customers will have the opportunity to donate $1, $5, or $10 at the register during the month of August.
On August 13, at 6:00 p.m. MT, customers can tune in to Natural Grocers’ YouTube channel and watch “Cooking with Health Crusader” as the store’s mascot demonstrates tasty Grilled Fish Tacos with Peach Salsa recipe.
