When Thad and Susan Buckey purchased the store in 1980, they were motivated to stock a store with the healthiest and highest quality items.
Having worked for IBM for 13 years, Thad became interested in health foods after doing payroll systems for health food stores. This triggered his interest in living a healthier lifestyle and led him to interview for a sales rep position with Nutraceutical.
During his 12 years with the Nutraceutical Thad's passion for independent natural food supplement stores prompted him to purchase Green Earth Grocery. Thad's extensive knowledge and standard for high quality supplements made Green Earth a destination for wellness that has proudly served the community for over 40 years now.
