GROWING with GRATITUDE
First thing, we want to express our gratitude towards our customers who have been so supportive, patient, and understanding during the transition period.  It has been a hectic January trying to put the store back together, as any of you who stopped in during the first few weeks could tell - we had our hands full!  Now that the shelves are filling out and ordering is being restored from chaos, we can take a deep breath and focus on the future. 
We look forward to delighting our customers with unique gifts, clean body care, new specialty foods, as well as organic staples like milks, breads and cheeses for all dietary needs.  While not everything we had envisioned for the new store is ready yet, we are grateful for the new space and opportunity for growth, and thank you to customers old and new for growing with us!
What's New in the New Store?

BULK FOODS:  Free-flow bulk bins now house nuts, grains and seeds, which customers can dole out for themselves without risk of contamination.  It is a further step towards greater sustainability as we can save on packaging and pass the savings onto you!  You may bring your own clean containers, just stop at the desk for us to weigh and label first.

NUT BUTTER MACHINEComing within the week - Grind your own fresh organic peanut butter!  We'll have 8oz or 16oz containers available, and you just fill, weigh and pay!

SHELF TAGS:  To make it easier for Gluten-Sensitive customers, we will continue to have a dedicated section for baking mixes and cookies on the dry goods shelf, and for breads in the freezer.  Since gluten-free products are much more ubiquitous, much of the other types of Certified gluten-free products are now spread around the store, distinguished by a YELLOW shelf tag backing (as opposed to white or black-backed price labels, which are NOT certified gluten free.)

CUSTOMER SERVICE DESK:  This is the rounded desk near the Commons entrance on the SW corner of the store where we will handle Returns, Special Orders (placement and picking up), Check-In for classes or the Vitality tanning bed, and researching other questions you may have.

REDUCED PACKAGING:   BYOB: Bring Your Own Bag!  While trying to strike a balance between customer convenience and sustainability, we are phasing out some bags and encouraging customers to bring their own re-usable ones.  In the near future, we'll have swapped some bags in favor of bio-plastic bags that are biodegradable.  We had phased out plastic shopping bags years ago in favor of unbleached paper, but hoping to go a step further.  Thank you for your help in this endeavor.

ALKALINE WATER:   Sometimes, a custom job can make for unexpected delays.  By mid-February, we should have the push-button filling stations ready to go, which should help reduce water waste and accidental over-filling.  In the meantime, simply turn a faucet handle to quickly fill jars with purified and/or mineralized alkaline water.

SNAP BENEFIT UPDATE

As of Jan 31st, our application is still being reviewed by the USDA, so we will keep you posted when we have our machine running again.  Despite the new requirements, we expect to be approved and ready to accept Bridge Cards by mid to late February.  Apologies for the inconvenience.

Learning to Love Garlic!

We're pumped for National Heart Month, focused on ways to help reduce risk factors for heart disease, like keeping blood pressure & cholesterol in check, keeping arteries strong and flexible.  No surprise that recommendations to reduce risks are all part of a generally healthy lifestyle: smart food choices (like the Mediterranean diet), regular aerobic exercise (at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes), and not smoking.  But when you need additional support, Kyolic has a range of products targeting this vital organ.

GARLIC - Affectionately called the "stinking rose" by some herbalists, not all garlic supplements are equal.  Kyolic® Odorless Aged Garlic Extract™ does not have the characteristic stink or harsh side effects, but retains all the cardiovascular benefits.
What's the difference?   There are four basic types:  heat distilled garlic oil in softgels, heat-dehydrated garlic seasoning powder in capsules/tablets, garlic oil macerates, and Kyolic® Odorless Aged Garlic Extract™

All garlic supplements have some nutritional value. However, powders and oils contain little or no water-soluble compounds which may be essential to obtain some of the key benefits of garlic. Garlic powders and oils contain some beneficial oil-soluble sulfur compounds along with a pungent garlic odor and harsh, oxidizing side effects. Beware of products that may claim to be deodorized, and garlic odor is just masked by chemical or sugar coatings. When the capsules or tablets dissolve, garlic body odor results.  

Kyolic® Odorless Aged Garlic Extract™, on the other hand, is truly the only odorless garlic supplement. The exclusive aging process eliminates garlic odor and harsh side effects.

Why is it good for the heart?  The unique set of sulfur-containing compounds in garlic have cardioprotective properties, like reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.  This combination of inflammation and stress puts our blood vessels at risk of unwanted plaque formation and clogging. Aged garlic extract has been shown to lower our blood triglycerides and total cholesterol.
