The Wellness Department is really a store within a store, offering an extensive selection of high quality vitamins, minerals, natural remedies and beautiful body care items.
The Wellness staff’s clearly defined goal is to “Provide our members and customers with natural alternatives to conventional body care products and a wide range of supplements for holistic health management”.
The staff are proud to offer body care products which are free of animal ingredients, animal testing, artificial colourings and fragrances, to those which are so pure they are “clean enough to eat” – free of all solvents. The department welcomes suppliers who are small and local, who produce quality, organic products. Imbibed with passion for their products, they stay hands-on, small and committed to living their vision.
Customers are supported in taking responsibility for their own health and well-being and are encouraged to empower themselves by doing their own research to find the best way to manage their own health and wellness. To help support this vision, the department offers a health-minded book section and magazines, a reference library, free magazines, product information and ongoing seminars on salient topics.
The friendly and knowledgeable Wellness staff rack up many years experience in retail sales between them, and are highly qualified in various fields of natural healing. They frequently attend training seminars to keep abreast of industry changes and the availability of new products. In this retail setting however, the staff are not permitted to diagnose or prescribe for a customer, but their role is to listen and help empower each customer in finding a health solution that is positive and unique to their own situation. For example, the staff may recommend a specific book, refer a customer to the reference library, provide literature on relevant supplements, steer a customer towards some positive dietary changes, or recommend the guidance of a practitioner.
Our staff diligently source affordable, natural, high quality products which meet criteria outlined in the Buying Guidelines and special orders are encouraged.
