If you’re tired of stepping over boxes and around construction workers at Natural Grocers, you can shop in peace – the expansion is finished.
The Colorado natural foods chain added 3,500 square feet of space to its Durango store, completely redoing the produce department and giving it more space up front. It added new products like grab-n-go salads and sandwiches, more paleo options and low-sugar snacks.
The dairy department will soon offer products only from dairies that graze their cows outdoors and don’t confine them.
The locally owned wine shop Put A Cork In It moved in next door and carries sustainable wines from small-batch wineries.
The shop also built a demo kitchen for guest speakers to present free seminars, cooking classes and nutritional classes. The next event is scheduled for 1 p.m. on May 18, “Brunch the Paleo Way.”
