Wichita, KS—WholeFoods Magazine has selected GreenAcres Market, based here, as its 2014 Retailer of the Year. This is the 25th year the award has been given.

Barb Hoffmann, CEO of the chain, and her husband, John, founded GreenAcres Market 20 years ago with the hopes of “spreading alternative health education to [our] community, along with providing fresh, high quality organic and natural foods and supplements so people could improve their health.” The pair, along with their daughter and employees, is dedicated to giving shoppers great customer service, top-quality education and a unique shopping experience.

In October 2013, GreenAcres jumped in size with the purchase of five stores. Stores—now eight in total—range in size from 4,000 to 22,000 square feet. A full story about GreenAcres will appear in next month’s issue.
