Cambridge Naturals, an award-winning family-owned retailer in Cambridge, Massachusetts, will open a second location at Boston Landing in summer 2018. Founded in 1974, Cambridge Naturals has operated as a single location brick-and-mortar store for 44 years, and will bring their community-focused brand of natural wellness retail across the river for the first time.
Boston Landing is a dynamic new neighborhood under development by New Balance Development Group (NBDG). Located in Brighton, adjacent to the Mass Pike and a brand new commuter rail stop, it is home to New Balance Inc., the Bruins, the Celtics, Harvard Business Publishing, WBGH, as well as Flatbread Pizza and Bowling, Rail Stop Restaurant and Kohi Coffee. Several hundred units of apartments as well as lab and office space are currently under construction. “We are proud to be a part of this exciting new community that values health and wellness. In working with NBDG and their partner Graffito SP, we really felt that they understood us and the unique experience that we bring to our customers,” said Emily Kanter, second generation co-owner of Cambridge Naturals.
“The Cambridge Naturals team embodies everything Graffito loves about representing independent, family-run businesses. They truly care about the communities they operate in and provide an exceptional shopping experience through friendly, knowledgeable service and a unique product mix. Their commitment to health and wellness only deepens the connection to Boston Landing and the future success of this new district,” said David Downing of Graffito SP.
Cambridge Naturals is owned and operated by founders Michael Kanter and Elizabeth Stagl alongside their daughter, Emily Kanter, and son-in-law Caleb Dean. They are well known throughout Greater Boston for the excellent customer service they provide, with a highly curated selection of supplements and herbs, clean body care, ethical lifestyle supplies and organic foods. Cambridge Naturals is a Certified B Corporation, a leading member of Business for a Fair Minimum Wage and a member of the Independent Natural Foods Retailers Association, which awarded them the “Store of the Year” in 2016. Michael and Elizabeth were inducted into the prestigious Hall of Legends by New Hope Network at the Natural Products Expo West in 2017.
“Cambridge Naturals at Boston Landing will fulfill a demand for natural health products for office and lab tenants, retail patrons, sports users, and the community. We are excited that Cambridge Naturals is joining Boston’s health and wellness district,” said Erin Harvey, New Balance Development Group.
