Honest First Impression
Posted on 09 / 17 / 2011
Hello! I am new to the Springfield area. I am Macrobiotic/Vegan and so there are a lot of specialty products that are not available in grocery stores or in Asian markets. I am from the Peoria area, and Naturally Yours is the store I would go on occasion to pick up these products. The pricing is far over-priced just as it was at Naturally Yours, but that is typical with this type of market. I believe if prices were lowered there would be more quantity sold, but perhaps it can't be bought at a low price wholesale.
Anyways, I called before going into food fantasies, and also checked out there website-turns out University of Illinois at Springfield students get 10 % off. Which is great! When I checked out the store, one of the workers was so nice to give my daughter a free apple because she was hungry.
I agree with the location-it's mostly horrible! It should be moved to a nice roomier location. The products in the store seem very fresh, and well stocked. I also like that there are free samples of products and literature in the back of the store. Also very good deals and they do accept SNAP benefits, which I am a participant of this program.
Overall I am very pleased with this store, and am happy that there are other Veg-heads out there so that I don't have to drive all the way to Peoria for things. (please carry more Macrobiotic things though! :) )

bad location, overpriced, needs music!
