A new natural grocer in Loveland will celebrate their grand opening on Saturday, November 16, providing residents of Loveland an easier choice when it comes to buying locally sourced and natural foods. 

The Crunchy Grocer, Northern Colorado's first emancipated food market, quietly opened their doors to their store, located at 1461 E. Eisenhower on Friday, November 8. Loveland lacked a natural grocer, with residents having to go to Fort Collins or Greeley to purchase groceries at places such as Sprouts, Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage (Natural Grocers.)

The 6,200 square foot store features features all organic fresh produce, bulk items, meat, dairy products, artisan baked goods, health supplements, personal care products and more. There are many non-GMO (Genetically modified organism) grocery items throughout the store; items that do contain GMOs are labeled accordingly. Those with special diets and other restrictions will be happy to know that there are many choices available at The Crunchy Grocer. 

The store also features fresh coffees, and will soon have a community room availalble. 

The Crunchy Grocer is the vision of local residents and clean food advocates Jonas and Missy Buehl, who created the store to provide their community with access to a variety of nutritious, sustainably produced food and all-natural products.

"We want everyone in our community to enjoy healthy, real foods, so we’re excited to welcome everyone into the store," Jonas Buehl, co-owner and founder said in an interview with NewHope360.com. "We believe the quality of our food is directly correlated to the quality of our health, and neither should be taken for granted."

Grand Opening Celebration Saturday, Nov. 16

The Crunchy Grocer will hold a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, November 16 from 8 am to 4 pm. The community is invited to join the party, with a chance to enjoy local entertainers, and sample some delicious, clean food. Vendors will be at the store to meet customers, and kids are invited to be a part of fun, creative activities. 

The first 300 customers to join the party will receive a FREE reusable shopping bag stuffed with samples, coupons and more.
