Carey and Robert Assaf, the owners of Kardish Health Food Centres in Ottawa, ON, have just opened their sixth store, this one in suburban Orleans, about 15 minutes east of the downtown core. The 2,500 sq. ft. store opened with little fanfare in a strip mall on a busy street in the New Year. Yet, reports Robert, it has been busy almost from the moment they opened the door. "There was just a buzz about the store coming into town. We didn't do any advertising...we just have a big sign out front. We're seeing between 80 and 90 customers a day. They're coming in, picking up a basket, and just filling it."
