The Natural Grocers store which is part of the Cornerstone Commons project along Johnson Drive in Mission, has scheduled a grand opening for next Tuesday.

The grocery is the major tenant in a development that will include four new restaurants. The two buildings that will house the restaurants are still under construction. The grocery store is undergoing its finishing touches and is scheduled for an occupancy inspection today.

Natural Grocers has planned several events for the grand opening schedule, including classes Tuesday tied to the Paleo Diet, a class on Wednesday about making recipes that kids will enjoy. Special classes are scheduled for Thursday and Friday of next week as well.

The city gave approval to the Cornerstone Commons project in June 2014. It is located on the site of the former Keystone auto dealership. The restaurants that have been announced for the development to this point include Pepperjax Grill, Pie Five Pizza and Potbelly Sandwich Shop.

Inquiries to the new Natural Grocers store about the grand opening were referred to corporate headquarters in Colorado where phone messages were not returned.
