Natural Grocers is hiring associates to support in-store operations at the new Warr Acres location in Oklahoma City.

Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage Inc. has revealed that it will relocate its Oklahoma City – North May store to a newly remodeled space on May 2 at 5903 Northwest Expressway in Warr Acres.

"We're excited to be nearing the finish line with the relocation of this store," noted Raquel Isley, VP of marketing. "The interior of the new store will be brighter, with a more open floor plan, and will include energy-efficient upgrades. Customers familiar with our Oklahoma City – North May store know our passion for supporting the health of humans and the health of our planet. We're looking forward to sharing that passion with new friends at a fresh location, just a few miles away.

"We're also excited to grow our good4u Crew [Natural Grocers' term for its employees] to support in-store operations at our new location," added Isley. "Since my grandparents founded Natural Grocers in 1955, we have embraced a history of caring for our Crew. We invite members of the community who are looking for a rewarding work environment, and have a passion for helping people, to apply today."
