A Summary Of A Crazy Few Weeks...
Sorry I haven't had the chance to upload this section for a few months, 2018 seems to be flying by! Since mid-March I've been having a re-evaluation of our stock (as you may have noticed if you picked up some of our bargains in the £1 bin). We had to make way for some amazing new brands that have now landed on our shelves! Keep an eye out for our blog posts on the main page, where we will be putting the spotlight on to the new additions to our shelves!
We've also brought back fresh produce (organic and plastic free fruit, vegetables, breads and pastries). This is something we've always enjoyed doing, however it's not always been easy as sometimes a lot can be wasted if it isn't sold. This is why we're giving it one last push! Don't forget if you bring in your Apothecary 27 tote bag you can claim 10% off of your fresh produce! Over the last month we have given away over 500 of these beautiful totes to do our part to cut back on plastic. We love seeing you guys using your bags, so please send us snaps which we can share on our social media. We've already seen them travel as far as Greece and Ibiza this month!
Last week we attended the Natural & Organic Products Europe Show at the ExCel in London. It was great to catch up with our suppliers, and take a peek at some of the exciting new products being launched over the last few months. However, the big news from the weekend came Sunday evening, where we won the awards for BEST INDEPENDENT RETAILER! We knew we had been short listed, but never in a million years did we think we would win. Thank you so much to YOU for making this possible. We've been so appreciative of all your kind words in store and on our social media over the past week. When I launched the store, I wanted to build a community of like-minded people, and offer them a space where they can confide in us, and trust us with their health. I think we have achieved this, and I hope you do too.
To top off the weekend, I was also inducted in to the "30 Under 30" list - a celebration of the emerging new talent in the health and wellness industry. It was such an honour to be put forward, and I want to say a big congratulations to all the other young entrepreneurs included on the list (keep an eye out for some of their brands finding their way on to our shelves soon!).
I also want to say a huge thank you to Viridian for taking care of us the entire weekend. I can't speak more highly of Cheryl and her amazing team. They go above and beyond to make you feel like part of their family, and the love for their products truly shines through. I'm so proud that they're our top selling range of supplements (by a long shot). We have a little collaboration coming up which we will be announcing soon...
I hope everyone takes the time to enjoy the lovely weather we're due to have this bank holiday weekend, and we will be here 11am-4pm Sunday and Monday for any health emergencies you may have, or if you just want to drop by and say hello!
