SUPER-REGIONAL RETAIL IN METRO GR

Recommended Posts

Dittos for 1 & 2, I just returned from a trip south and found a great natural grocery store, Earth Fare http://www.earthfare.com headquarters in Ashville, NC. They have 12 stores in I believe smaller markets than GR, Knoxville TN, Charleston SC, Athens GA etc... (many in university towns). I like shopping at Harvest Health but I think GR is ready for a full sized natural grocery store.

I read somewhere that Trader Joes is owned by someone in the German family that owns Aldi Stores, anyone have any info? I have to rethink the monthly trips to TJ's after gas had gone up so high but I do have a small pantry filled with a 6 month supply of capers, balsamic vinegar and roasted red peppers.

For any foodies on the board, GR is home to a Penzey Spices, http://www.penzeys.com one of a couple dozen locations in US and first in Michigan.

I went an organic/natural/ food store in Fort Collins, CO, and it was a nice store but it cost waaaay to much. I'll just stick to chemical-filled produce and meat for now. ;) Though I agree that it would be nice to have one of those in GR.
