If you happen to be in Saskatoon and are hoping to see Lovie Wesolowski, there are two places you are likely to find her. The most obvious spot is her store of 40 years, Nature’s Health Centre. It’s where she has helped countless people regain and maintain good health. It is also where she has helped launch the careers of many elite athletes.
Suzie and John Wensley of the Good Health Mart in Collingwood, ON celebrated the 10th anniversary as owners of the store with what they described as “the best customer appreciation day ever.”
For father and daughter team Dennis and Leane Janz of Good N’ Natural in Steinbach Manitoba, it was time. “We were maxed out on our selling space, as our sales per square feet in our store were exceeding good retail practices. So, we could not realistically anticipate growth beyond increases attributed to inflation,” says Dennis.
When Jason Sebeslav took ownership of The Peanut Mill Natural Foods Market from his mother Antje Wirth in 2009, things were already in good shape. Established in 1976 by Antje, the St. Catharines, ON store was one of the longest serving and most successful in the Niagara region.
If you were at CHFA East, you were probably hearing a lot of buzz on the show floor about #NHPsAreNotDrugs, our latest campaign in support of the natural health product industry. If you weren’t in attendance, this is a critical issue for our entire industry and we need everyone to help.
During its 40 years of business, Foodsmiths has been through a few things.
There was the devastating Tay River flood in the third year of business that wiped out most of the store’s stock, almost dealing the young business a deathblow.
When interest rates climbed above 20 per cent in the early 80s, Foodsmiths founders/owners Claire and Don Smith saw their store perched on the brink of demise. This happened just after they had purchasing their building.
