Nature’s Pantry Owners optimistic about new grocery store
In a 750-square-foot portion of the Foley Building, they launched Nature’s Pantry. Just a short time later, they moved into a building on Fourth Street where they still operate today.
“Some of our friends thought we were crazy,” says Linda, who left a comfortable nursing home administrator job to run the store.
Just a couple months ago, the Clayvilles unveiled the most recent expansion of Nature’s Pantry, bringing its total square footage up to 7,000.
“People come from all over,” Linda says.
She and her husband, Dennis, are not deterred by the recent decision by the La Grande Urban Renewal Agency to loan $500,000 to Al Adelsberger and Troy Berglund to renovate the old Blockbuster building to turn it into Market Place Family Foods just across the street from Nature’s Pantry.
