117 Things Found Inside The New Natural Grocers in Little Rock.

Natural Grocers opens in Little Rock with a store on Rodney Parham Road. My curiosity being what it is, I set out to see what was inside.  Come see.

I received information about the opening back in December. After seeing interest in other stories I've recently posted with the idea of showing you what's inside places, I asked if I could come in before the store opened and see what they had. And this is what I discovered

One more thing... about the hours on the door.  I was curious why a place would close at a strange time like 9:04.  Turns out one of the original owners of the grocery store group, Margaret Isley, hated to turn people out at closing time.  The odd time is just to point out that even if the store hours are over, you won't be shoved out the door.  I like that.
