The retail portion of the business is a place to find health information and to purchase fresh, natural, organic and whole foods, as well as nutritional supplements (including herbal remedies). Customers come to the market for skincare products and even pet care merchandise added in a recent expansion.
Aromatherapy, medical massage therapy, hypnotherapy, energy work and other services are available from holistic health counselors in the wellness center.
Joe Dumas is very particular about the products he brings into his retails store--and customers have noticed.
"The more I bought, the more I sold," he says, of the recent sales growth. "And the more I sold, the more I bought. We are heavy on vitamin supplements and organic food that is local and less processed."
