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.”
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

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.

12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm, and closed

“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.
