Story to Date
Health Foods for You the friendly independent shop started off in Friars Street and relocated to a more prominent location in North Street in May 2016. The shop is owned by Jane Pearson who has run the business for over 5 years . Jane follows a healthy wholefood vegan diet with her background in beauty therapy and teaching is dedicated to helping others make the right choices in life.
With many challenges in the industry and a young family Jane was determined to do her best to provide a much needed service in the community offering a range of quality products and supplements at competitive prices. Locally sourced, organic and vegan being her speciality.
Customers need speciality products that you simply cannot buy anywhere else and I am always happy to source and order such items in for people.
Most of the larger premises in North Street being suitably placed become too expensive along with crippling business rates so Jane was unable to give her customers the commitment of a new location she felt the shop much needed. All of the regulars will know that things were desperate with the last day of trade being last Saturday and still nowhere to go! Stock was run right down and customers were led to believe that the shop was in fact closing.
I just kept saying to customers “watch this space” because I couldn’t believe that this was the end and I felt hopeful and remained positive that something would come up, I just didn’t know what!
A week before closing an opportunity came up for a little shop in North Street which Jane felt was the perfect location to move her business to.
75 North Street is the new address for Health Foods For You, next door to Sudbury Shoe repairs. Past Juniper flowers and Rafi’s spice box. Jane acted quickly to secure the shop and as of next week is preparing the business for this amazing and exciting opportunity. I’ve always believed in fate but this was getting bit close even for me!
There is a little work involved in getting the shop fitted out and ready but Jane is aiming to open at the end of the May 2016 all being well. NOW OPEN !
