Welcome Natural Grocers to Little Rock!

Here I am outside of the new Natural Grocers Store in Little Rock, Arkansas

I was invited to attend a VIP Luncheon on Monday, January 25, 2016 at the Natural Grocers store, located at 9210 North Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock. Since it's the newest location in Arkansas (there is also a store in Fayetteville) I decided to go to learn more about this family-run business that offers organic and natural products.

About two dozen of us were treated to a great three course meal, including Organic Girl Salad with Balsamic Vinegar Dressing with Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Teton Waters 100% Grass-Fed Beef Chili served with Against the Grain Hot Buttered Baguettes and finished with Almond Flour Berry Crumble.

Salad was served with Sauteed Kale with Red Onion and Peppers along with Jackson's Honest Chips

Caroline Cheong, Nutritional Health Coach Regional Manager for Natural Grocers, presented a brief overview of the Founding Principals along with the company's Commitments to Quality, Everyday Affordable Pricing, Community and their Employees while we ate the delicious meal that was prepared in the on-site kitchen.

After the luncheon and presentation, we all received a complimentary shopping bag along with handouts, coupons and a calendar of upcoming events. I also took a tour of the store where I used the $15.00 gift card I had just received!
