Boucher Institute opening a retail natural dispensary

The Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine has announced it is opening a retail outlet: Boucher Naturals - Natural Health Products, Dispensary, Books & More. It is the newest addition to the New Westminster, BC-based graduate-level naturopathic medical college.

Currently under construction, this street-level retail space will feature a fully-stocked natural dispensary, a comprehensive range of natural health products for purchase, as well as a wide selection of healthy snacks and juices.

Managing the store will be William (Bill) Reynolds, the former executive director of the Canadian Health Food Association. He brings nearly 40 years of experience in the natural products industry, ranging from managing retail spaces to the importation, manufacturing and distribution of natural health products in Canada.

The 1,400 square foot retail space is set to open its doors in early December 2011. Its dispensary will serve the Boucher Naturopathic Medical Clinic, located on the third floor of the Boucher Centre, while the retail space will feature the highest-quality natural health products and offer educational services, such as lectures and seminars, to the public.
