The Natural Food Store

A long-time partner of the New South Produce Cooperative, The Natural Food Store has much more to offer than the name suggests. Certainly, they have nutritional supplements,  local and organic produce, allergy-friendly foods, non-GMO and organic groceries items, and a huge selection of natural personal items. However, it is their specialty services that really sets this store apart.

Co-owner Eric McMullen is a clinical nutritionist. He also studies herbal medicine and holistic nutrition. He provides nutritional counseling by appointment. Eric says,

“My particular fields of study are herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, and health coaching, but a big part of how I help people is by bringing a holistic approach to their health.  This also provides me the opportunity to lean on a network of people that share the same passion for health as I do, whether they are doctors, farmers, teachers, restaurant owners, counselors, or truck drivers’ wives.”

It is this individual approach that sets The Natural Food Store apart, as well as the specialized services, including massage therapy, that are offered to anyone seeking to improve their health and well-being.

The Natural Food Store can be found at 312 Beebe-Capps Expressway in Searcy. They are open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Contact them via phone at 501-268-9585 or email at
