TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)__Tuesday September 17th, Topekans will have a brand new healthy choice for their everyday groceries.
Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, a Colorado based company, held a sneak peak event open to the public Monday evening and will officially open Tuesday morning at 8:56 a.m.
It is located at Southwest 21st and Westport Rd. and offers naturally raised meats and organic produce.
Attendees Monday evening were excited to have friendly service and a healthy choice so close to home.
Jessica Brunton said, "It's a little more convenient since its off the interstate as oppose to being in the middle of town and the prices seem really good. Really comparable to Wal-Mart and Dillons."
Another attendee of the event was thrilled with the customer service. Hank Hylton said, "From talking to employees that work here, they are really concerned with what you want. If they don't have what you want, they'll find it for you and get it for you." A lot of places don't provide that personal service."
Natural Grocers is a bag free store and they encourage shoppers to bring their own shopping bags. Five cents will be donated to local food banks each time shoppers remember to bring personal shopping bags.
The grand opening events feature daily grand prize drawings and free sample tastings all week through September 22nd.
