The best health shop for miles!
Posted on 10 / 22 / 2011
I came to England a year ago from vegan wonderland--Portland, Oregon--and was ordering most things I needed online because the closest thing to a health shop (I thought) was Holland & Barrett's. Only after being here for at least 4 months did I find out that this little treasure shop is tucked away in a small side-street. It's a small shop, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in selection. Instead of having shelves stocked with massive amounts of each product, this shop has a few of each item instead which means there is quite a massive selection for such a small store.
I'm able to find gluten-free foods, yeast-free, sugar-free, vegan and even some raw nut butters which save me having to order them online and pay for shipping.
On top of that Adrian, the store owner, is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and I never leave without a decent chat about something health-related. He is also quick to accomodate any special things I'd like ordered. For such a small town as Grantham with not very many shops, this one is, to me, a small miracle.
vast selection, friendly staff
