LAKEWOOD, COLO. – Natural and organic grocery retailer Natural Grocers is celebrating its 65th anniversary from Aug. 13-15 with several special promotions. All 159 Natural Grocers stores, in 20 states, will celebrate with sweepstakes and contests featuring over 1,700 prizes, including a 2020 Subaru Crosstrek, plus the biggest discounts of the year. 

When Margaret and Phillip Isely co-founded Natural Grocers in 1955, all they had was $200 and a dream of making a healthy and active lifestyle possible for everyone. This year's anniversary celebration coincides with what would be Natural Grocers' Co-Founder Margaret Isely's 99th birthday. 

Over the last 65 years, the family has been steadfast in its mission to make fresh, high-quality natural and organic groceries, supplements, household essentials, and only 100% organic produce, along with free Nutrition Education, available to the communities they serve, according to the company. 

"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, co-president of Natural Grocers. "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 65 years of healthy living with our valued customers."
