Myrtle Grove Naturals, LLC

Published in the November 9, 2017 edition

Doug & Amy Ligons are the owners of Myrtle Grove Naturals, LLC, located at 647 8th Street, Suite C, in Myrtle Point.  Amy can be found working six days a week at their store, which opened four months ago as of November, 2017.

I asked Amy to describe what products can be found at Myrtle Grove Naturals.  “We carry bulk spices and loose leaf teas, gluten-free, paleo and vegan-friendly food products, a wide variety of vitamins and supplements, local seasonal produce and daily lunch items,” Amy replied.  “We offer variety of salads and wraps, and when the weather turns colder, we will be offering hot soups.”

Sounds delicious, but there’s more!  “We make our hummus and salsa in-house,” explained Amy.  “And all our salad dressings are also house-made.  We have fresh juice and blends made to order, and non-GMO products. Each week we try and expand our inventory, and we’re looking forward to be able to provide organic meat, dairy products and baked goods in the future.”

When Eden Valley Naturals closed in neighboring Coquille, Myrtle Point and the surrounding areas lost an integral asset within the community. Myrtle Grove Naturals was created to “fill the void,” according to Amy.  “My husband and I were born and raised in Myrtle Point, but we moved away for about four years.  He is a transmission lineman and is away for long periods, so I hold down the fort here with our two children.”        

In addition to the above-mentioned products, Amy said her store carries essential oils and homeopathic remedies.  Their food products include nuts, grains, and plant-based proteins.

“We have a really wide variety of customers who frequent our store,” said Amy.  “People are looking to eat better and live healthier lives, and we’re doing our best to help them do that!  We like being of service to our small town. It’s gratifying knowing we are helping our neighbors by providing a more natural alternative and items that are tailored to their specific dietary needs.  Cultivating relationships with our customers is key to building a better business for our community.”

I asked Amy why she decided to advertise in the South Coast Shopper.  “We liked that the Shopper reaches a wide range of customers up and down the Oregon coast,” she replied.  “We’re the only natural food store within a 35 mile radius, with the closest ones in either Coos Bay or Winston.  Myrtle Point has only one grocery store, and we felt the community would be supportive of a natural alternative that provides options not currently available locally.”

In addition to food and vitamin products, Myrtle Grove Naturals has made a home for several local artisans, like wood art, paintings, hand-painted signs, and homemade cards.  All their products can be viewed online on their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Myrtle-Grove-Naturals-LLC.

Future plans for the store include providing clothing options, bulk nuts, dried fruits and flours. The goal is to build inventory to suit the needs of Myrtle Point and the surrounding communities. “We want this place to be filled with what the community members need,” said Amy.

If you’re in the market for some quality organic food products, supplements, or maybe just a healthy, delicious lunch, stop by Myrtle Grove Naturals.  They’re open Monday from 12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and closed Sundays.  Their phone number is 541-559-0647.

“We really want our store to be of use to Myrtle Point, and we’re building our inventory to suit the needs of our neighbors,” said Amy.
