A national, and natural, grocery store chain is moving to Jonesboro.
Natural Grocers, founded in Colorado 1955, will open in the Caraway Plaza in Jonesboro. The store will be located in the 25,000-SF building left vacant by Hastings.
Halsey Thrasher Harpole Commercial Real Estate made the announcement on Facebook.
According to the post, the company was expected to hire 18 people this year.
“We are so excited about Natural Grocers coming to Jonesboro,” Gary Harpole, managing partner for Halsey Thrasher Harpole said. “This is one of those times when an overwhelming desire of the market gets met by a leading national company.”
Natural Grocers employs more than 3,000 across the country and already has stores in Fayetteville and Little Rock.
