Nature's Pantry is now Natural Grocers

Natural Grocers is excited to be able to continue building on Nature’s Pantry’s success by providing customers in Independence with healthy, affordable natural and organic groceries. Like Nature’s Pantry, Natural Grocers is family-run and for the last 60 years has operated on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high quality foods and dietary supplements, along with nutritional knowledge, to help support their own health.

We understand you are curious about this transition.  Following are answers to some of the questions we’ve been asked about the change:

Now Open Sunday

  • In addition to being open Monday – Saturday 8:00 am – 8:35 pm, the Independence Natural Grocers store will be open on Sundays from 8:00 am to 7:06 pm.  

Pantry Advantage Cards

  • On average, Natural Grocers’ pricing is around 10% lower than the Nature’s Pantry non-card pricing.  There are some prices that are the same, some that are higher, but overall, the reduction is approximately 10%. 
  • The Pantry Advantage Card will be honored every day through the end of 2014.  We are excited that you will be able to enjoy 5% savings on top of the average 10% savings across the store.
  • December 2014's super days, the 30th and 31st, will be honored with yet another 5% off.
  • In January, Natural Grocers will institute “member pricing every day.”  As a customer, you will be able to enjoy everyday pricing that on average is about 10% less (on most products) than current non-card prices.  Everyone wins!
  • In January, February and March, Natural Grocers will honor super days for holders of Pantry Advantage Cards.  The schedule for these days will be published soon.
  • In addition, you can sign up online to receive the free Natural Grocers sale flyer – the Health Hotline – so you’ll be alerted to all of the great sales we have set up for you. The next Health Hotline will arrive in February.

Quality Standards

  • The produce area of the store will remain 100% certified organic – no change there.  One area where you will see some change is in the dairy.  Natural Grocers maintains a strict pasture-based dairy guideline. This means any brand that does not use milk from pasture-based dairies will be phased out, starting with yogurts.  This is good for the cows, the farmers, the environment and you.
