Limited product selection; Great Customer Service

This is a tiny health food store in the heart of the Civil War Re-enactment Capital of the South. Surrounding it are all the familiar chain restaurants, plus some that seem specific to the south, like Hardees and Arby's. The selection is quite limited and, a couple of times i've been there, the vegetables looked old, wilted and unappetizing. However, the owner is great! she recommended restaurants and other stores that might sell what they don't have.
Her welcoming manner helped me ease my way into being a veganist in the south.

Pros: Clean, Well-Lit, Very Friendly, Helpful Service
Cons: Limited Selection, Veggies not so "Fresh" sometimes

Before there was ever a Wegmans in Fburg, this is where I got my vegan staples like nutritional yeast and vital wheat gluten - and often still get them here. Friendly staff.

An OK place for specific items

I buy my honey and a few other items from Healthway. I used to purchase lots of products from them but over the years my diet has moved away from primarily vegetarian back to that of an Omnivore. Their service is most times excellent and their product selection is at best baffling.
I have shopped at the Pantry Shelf too and when I was primarily vegetarian 95% of my food came from those two stores. I rarely shop there anymore since getting my Organic Food is more economical shopping at the local Wegman's and the rest is purchased online. Healthway has inflated prices on many of their items but if you desire excellent service I would recommend them.

Healthway is a wonderful place to get herbs and supplements, but their food selection is lacking. A few veg products, and even fewer vegan products. The staff is however friendly and helpful...just don't go looking to get your weeks worth of groceries.

best healthfood store in the area...

well its really just one of two healthfood stores.. the other being the pantry shelf on sofia st. downtown
its a nice store where most of the customers are regular customers. it has a nice small town feel when you walk in. the employees are eager to help. they have vitamins and supplements and food, bulk, produce that is all certified organic! they very much cater to those with allergies especially gluten free foods..one of the great things about the store is that they will order things that they dont currently carry.. sometimes you have to order a whole case of the product but you get a 10% discount if you do order a case. and hey, its better than paying shipping!
my only complaint.. they have a lot of junk food. lots of chips and cookies and brownies and cake mixes and donuts and pies and ice cream and chocolate.. sometimes i wonder if it is a junk food store for people with food allergies.. just dont think that just because you are in a healthfood store that you are getting healthy food! read the labels!
i have to rate this place with 4 happy cows because it is the best place in the area.. if it wasnt the only healthfood store in the area or there was a wholefoods or trader joes alittle closer, they may not get so many
