Expansion complete

Nature’s Pantry Natural Foods completes second major expansion

Dennis and Linda Clayville remember the day when the corner of Fourth Street and Adams Avenue in downtown La Grande was a hopping place.

And they believe it’s about to be born again.

The Clayvilles, owners of Nature’s Pantry Natural Foods at 1907 Fourth St., recently celebrated the completion of their second major store expansion since 2012. They’ve grown to 7,500 square feet, and have their office in a loft above the store. 

To get to the office, one climbs a fancy spiral staircase. From there, once-tiny Nature’s Pantry looks just like a well-stocked, big and bustling supermarket.

And that it should. The Clayvilles have raised the ceilings, improved the lighting, improved street access, expanded their bulk food section, added more organic and locally grown produce and more specialty items like gluten and salt-free foods. They’ve also built a juice bar offering cool and healthy beverages.

“We’ll be able to provide more products and more services for our customers,” Dennis Clayville said. “It’s just a tremendous feeling to have it done.”

With her avid interest in health and nutrition, Linda Clayville started Nature’s Pantry in a small spot on the main floor of the Foley building on Adams Avenue in July 1986.

In less than two years, the business outgrew its 850-square-foot space and moved to its present location, in the building called The New Town Square.

“Nature’s Pantry was really Linda’s idea. She was teaching health and cooking classes and it was hard for people to find the stuff she was talking about,” Dennis Clayville said.
