Sweet little healthy grocery chain Ann's Health Food Center & Market is temporarily down one store, after suffering a fire at its branch in Waxahachie.

According to the owners, the store experienced an internal fire in the early hours of the morning on December 16.

As a result, it will be closed "for an undisclosed amount of time" while it assess damages and begins restoration. The original flagship store on Zang Boulevard remains open.

Ann's Health Food Center & Market is an organic market owned and operated by the third generation of the Munchrath family. They've been considered a local staple in the natural foods and vitamins industry since opening their store in 1984.

Their merchandise includes pasture-raised meats, organic produce, vitamins and supplements, natural body care products, and a big selection of vegan and gluten-free items.

The Oak Cliff store has an in-house cafe and juice counter that serves a wide variety of foods including smoothies, soups, wrap sandwiches, and other easy to-go fare.

Their mission consists of good customer service and knowledgeable staff, with their mantra being, "Let our family of experts teach your family how to live healthy."

A spokesperson said that the Waxahachie store will be back open as soon as possible, and to stand by for updates.
