Respond to Review of Vx
by V.

Review: I went to Vx for the first time today and the person at the store (R., the owner) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I had a few questions about being vegan and he was able to provide me with the information which I sought. It was good to see a store dedicated to selling vegan products since I do not know about any other stores which exist in the London area that exclusively sells vegan products. It was apparent that R. was passionate about veganism and his philosophy/enthusiasm about being 'vegan' was contagious and inspiring. I was trying to stop consuming milk but I did not like soy milk, rice milk, or oat milk because I did not like their consistencies. I explained my preferences to R. and he provided me with a sample of Kara (coconut based milk) which I love. In no way did he try to 'convert' me nor was he judgmental in any way when I was asking him questions. I purchased some kara and then ordered a shake. The shake was delicious (I purchased the trio cookie/mint one). I have now decided to stop drinking milk. I do not think that I would have made this decision if R. had not provided me with the information and taken the time to give me a sample of the Kara milk. There was quite a good selection of vegan sweets & food available for sale in the shop along with various clothing, badges, patches, shoes, condoms, plastic cupcake protectors, etc. There are sofas downstairs where you can sit and drink/eat. I was informed that Vx was holding a cake event tomorrow (Sun., 4 July 2010) and there are other community based events which are also held in the shop. Overall it is a place worth visiting if you are interested in veganism and you want to support businesses which promote the vegan lifestyle.
