So grateful for this place!

First of all, wow! To go into a grocery store and have everything be vegan, first of all, is amazing. Second, they have all the products you were hoping to find and more. They have food, accesories, t-shirts, some make-up/beauty care stuff, treats and food for dogs and cats, among other things. Everyone there is always super nice and helpful. I always go with Whiskey, my dog, and they give him treats and he's even been in a photo on their page! I go there at least once a month, to stock up on stuff for me, and buy stuff to send in my monthly vegan swap box! Their selection is perfect to send my swap box friends, since there are local things that some people don't know about yet! :)

Pros: That I don't live close by! :P
