HG Anfu Lu is Moving!


Big news—Hunter Gatherer Anfu Lu is moving! We’re packing up shop at our oldest location and heading east to a new store on Shimenyi Lu at Taikoo Hui, just a few minutes walk from Nanjing West Road Metro Station.

The move is a big change for us and really hits home on how far we’ve come.

Our last day of operation at Anfu Lu is Sunday, April 23.

Moving Day Sale!

We’re offering 15% off all our all-natural grocery products at Anfu from April 11-23. Come on by one last time to “stock up your pantry!”

Come Visit Our New Store this Spring!

HG at HKRI Taikoo is slated to open in May and will feature a completely new menu. Though our Taikoo Hui store will not include a grocery, you can still find all-natural groceries at our Hubindao location or at Yimishiji, our trusted partner and online all-natural marketplace.

Meet Yimishiji

We’ve long provided all-natural retail products and chemical-free produce to the Anfu community, and we want keep that offering alive. In doing so we’d like to introduce our trusted partner Yimishiji, an all-natural online marketplace that also delivers straight to your door! Yimi and Hunter Gatherer are built upon similarly rigorous sourcing standards, with a zero-tolerance policy for chemical usage. 

You can find Yimishiji on WeChat, their APP, or https://www.yimishiji.com/.
