Sunflower Health Food Shop Closure News
It was several weeks before Christmas when a customer of ours at “Health Foods For You” said that we may want to contact “The Sunflower” health food shop in Hadleigh as she had heard that it was closing down. We were so shocked as that shop had been established for about 36 years and had a strong loyal customer base providing wholefoods & supplements. But the opening of Morrison’s in Hadleigh was pulling shoppers out of the town & apparently the footfall just wasn’t there.
Being aware that this was a sensitive matter I eventually made a call to Theresa, the owner, to see if there could be some resolve and to offer support and my help in any way.
At “Health Foods For You” we weigh & bag our own produce in house to maximise quality & profits & this was not a service that Sunflower, Hadleigh offered.
I talked to Theresa about pooling our energies to continue to provide a service to Hadleigh. Although I had only been open myself for 18 months, following redundancy from Sudbury’s long established health food shop, it was so sad to think of yet another independent health food shop being lost, along with several jobs.
A date of Christmas Eve however was set to close the doors of “The Sunflower” for the last time & it was so sad, having just been through my own shop set up I could relate to the implications of losing staff, money, emotions, time & energy.
Sunflower Customers Support From Health Foods For You, Sudbury
Theresa wanted to support me at “Health Foods For You” which was fantastic. She knew how we were struggling to keep our heads above water. She very graciously advertised my business in her closed shop window & on her web site www.sunflowerhadleigh.co.uk/ which for me was a great opportunity to offer a mobile Home Delivery to Hadleigh.
