Our core company values shape the way we do business as a company: from whom we hire or buy from, the products we choose to sell, and how we treat our customers and community. They mean a lot to us, and we hope they resonate with you, too.
We worry about the bad stuff so you don't have to.
Every product on our shelves has passed our tough standards for quality & ingredients. No artificial flavours, colours, sweeteners, preservatives – and that’s only the beginning. We’re sticklers in the back room so you can feel confident at the shelf.
We KNOW natural. And we love to talk about it!
We have knowledgeable, passionate employees with a diverse range of expertise in natural health. From our store naturopath and herbalist to our holistic nutritionists, we are among the most educated groups of natural healthcare experts in the area.
