Wish I Had Gone Here Sooner!
Posted on 09 / 24 / 2010
Silly me... I have worked a block away from this store for 2 1/2 years now, and I just got around to going in today! Well, the good thing is that it's a pretty good little place! The sad thing is I missed out on it all this time. So, let's go to it. What I like: wide variety of veggie and vegan options, herbal and natural medicines and body products, etc. I found some stuff I never find anywhere else, like boxed egg replacers, a brand of soy jerky I never heard of, a variety of vegan chocolate chips, chia seeds, vegan butter (which I only occasionally find in the regular market), and vegan cheeses (like Daiya and some other brand for Parm cheese, not just soy cheeses with casein). I liked the selection of packaged vegan products, like the Sunneen brand. I didn't pay attention to the salad bar, but they did have one. The staff was friendly and helpful. What I didn't like: small store overall, so not a whole lot. In other words, I don't see it becoming a place for me to do all of my shopping... just specific items. It was pricey, but not really when you compare it to other healthy stores like it (I still don't understand why healthy/organic/veggie/vegan things tend to be more expensive!).
Great variety of veggie and vegan items, Carries hard to find items, Helpful and friendly staff
Small=not a place for all shopping needs, Bit pricey, but not unreasonable
