I was after a vegan probiotic and multivitamin two in one for a trip I was about to do and I went in to Alara. I was stunned by all the info the staff knew about how these products are manufactured. They could so efficiently direct me towards vegan products and when a doubt sprang up, they took the bother to call the company and call me back at home to inform me that the product I had eyed up was not in fact vegan.
Alara is an independent health food shop with decent prices and a really good selection given their space. In the spirit of supporting independent businesses, this place really deserve your custom!
