Simply Nourished, organic grocer, opens up in Mason City


A little more than four months after beginning major work to bring an organic grocer downtown, Simply Nourished- Mason City owner Melissa Fabian had plenty to celebrate with a store opening on Monday afternoon.

"We're very excited, it's been really fast," Fabian said.

According to her, it isn't entirely surreal to see fully stocked shelves of various olive oils, jackfruit salads and kombucha now because there was a consistent goal in mind.
