Natural Grocers set to close first store in more than 60 years

natgrlNatural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage Inc. plans to close its Tulsa-Central store in Tulsa, OK, by Nov. 9.  The company said the decision for the closing reflects that store's financial performance and the company's ongoing efforts to enhance operating efficiencies across its store base.

Closing the Tulsa-Central store marks Natural Grocers' first store closure since the Company was founded in 1955.  The company stated it currently has no plans to close any additional stores.

Natural Grocers' other store in Tulsa will remain open; the company believes that store will be in a strong position to effectively serve the Tulsa market. A store closing sale will begin Sept. 17.

The company said it will work to transfer some crew members to Natural Grocers' other stores in Oklahoma.  All other crew members will be offered a severance arrangement, with health benefits covered through the end of 2018.
