Gabe Nabors, CEO and Owner of Mustard Seed Market, said in the release: “When my family opened the Solon store, we had high expectations.  It was the largest natural foods grocery store east of the Mississippi, and the natural foods industry was having double digit growth.  Unfortunately, the store did not develop as we had hoped and today with the increased competition both in bricks and mortar of all types as well as online, our time has come.  My family wishes to give a sincere thank you to all of our Solon staff, the Solon community and to the thousands of customers that helped us these past 20 years to push health foods to the mainstream.”
