I arrived home after gym and shopping today and received a call from  my favorite neighbor, Heidi.  She advised me to check my mail for a coupon for a new store opening close to home. I was really not in need of groceries but she convinced me to visit the grand opening of Natural Grocers at Broadway and Country Club in Tucson. She was right that this is a very happy event to celebrate. This store is a treasure trove of shopping wonder for me. They carry all kinds of exotic and wonderful local health foods, very well priced. There are items available in bulk for those who can utilize a giant bag of oats or other grains. The produce is organic. The body care and vitamin section rivals Whole Foods for selection and beats them on price!!! We are so lucky to have this new asset in our ‘hood.

I cruised the store and tasted the various special offerings being sampled. I found many new products, of which I was unaware, now available right down the street.  I am highly attached to grocery shopping at all price points and levels.  I go grocery shopping when I travel just to have some fun and inform myself about the local market situation.  It is how I bond with a community other than my own, through groceries.  I am thrilled to see all the fun discount programs offered by Natural Grocers, as well as noting that the base pricing is very customer friendly.  The staff was overcome with joy to receive the new shoppers.  I have never been so well greeted and treated in a grocery store.  Methinks they have training in the 5 and 10 rule….showing eye contact and acknowlegement to anyone within 10 feet, and speaking with uplifting gusto to any customer who is within 5 feet of the staff.  They were giddy with welcome, happy greetings for me.  What’s not to like?  I will shop here for sure.   Today I was crammed packed in my home fridge but found some great items to put in the pantry, very well priced.  I am a huge fan already, and look forward to the fun events they have planned for education and enrichment.
