A former Hancock Fabrics store in Longview, TX will be home to a Natural Grocers supermarket by the middle of next year. Upgrades are underway at the 17,000-square-foot space, located at 406 W. Loop 281.
Natural Grocers has been eyeing the Longview market since 2015. Hancock Fabrics, in the meantime, shuttered all of its 185 nationwide stores in the middle of this year, in the wake of declaring bankruptcy. The stores were sold to the Great American Group.
“We have been looking, trying to find a location for them for quite some time,” said John King Jr. of Longview-based JBK Real Estate Investments & Brokerage. King represented the group that owns and will lease the site to Natural Grocers. Roche Constructors Inc. of Greely, CO is the general contractor.
