Herb and Spice Wellness Shop

Herb and Spice Wellness Shop

For most retail stores, an expansion means knocking down a wall or two, moving its entire operation, or buying the unit next door to expand into.  For Jacques Amsellem and Jerome Duquette, owners of the Bank St. Herb & Spice in Ottawa, expansion meant something a little different.  They took their existing supplement and HABA departments, completely separating them from the rest of the store and moved them across the street into their very own space.

   “We were bursting at the seams,” says Ilona Jones, supplement buyer and manager of the new store, referred to as Herb & Spice Wellness Shop.  “It had become quite apparent that we were not able to meet the needs of our customer base with the small supplement and HABA section that we had at 375 Bank St.  An expansion of the existing space was not possible at the time, so when a location across the street became available, it was an opportunity we could not pass up.”

Along with your ad being viewed by more than 10,000 owners, managers, buyers, product recommenders and floor sales staff, you also get some great free editorial opportunities, including Trade Talk, Product Profiles and Pre-Show Buzz. Here are the details: Trade Talk is one of the highest read sections of CNHR and your vital link with retailers.
