The Natural Store Celebrates 20 Years of Business, connecting the public with organic food and natural bodycare!
The Natural Store, Falmouth celebrate their 20 years this July- outliving many shops that opened in Falmouth during the late 90’s and paving the way for other health food stores throughout Cornwall.
Twenty years ago The Natural Store began, as one of the first wholefood and natural food suppliers in Falmouth. And while there have been a few changes along the way, that same shop is now one of only a few businesses to survive and thrive in Falmouth town, Cornwall.
“We wanted to host a party to say thank you to our loyal customers from in and around Falmouth. We want to continue to help people living in Falmouth, or anyone visiting to make good, informed choices about what they are eating and where that food comes from. The party was about saying thank you!’ says Rob Kneebone, Manager.
The celebration involved live music from local bands and musicians, delicious food & drink samples, goody bags full to the brim with fantastic giveaways and samples to try, facepainting; there really was something for everyone.
In addition, over the two days, the store held a raffle for a hamper of goods from the store and a gift voucher and raised £90 for Cornish Charity Surfers Against Sewage.
Paul Johnson, Owner of The Natural Store said “We had a very successful two days celebrating our twenty years in Falmouth, seeing many, many customers old and new. In fact, there has been a wholefood shop here for something like forty years, starting as The Granary, but in the autumn we will be moving to bigger premises opposite the pier on the Market Strand. This means both stores can be under one roof with more room to move and more room for new lines. Many thanks to our customers who have given us so much support over the years in increasing numbers.”
The party was not only attended by members of the community and customers of the store but also Deputy Mayor of Falmouth, Councillor Mrs Minson. Mrs Minson was kind enough to join in the celebrations and cut the cake to mark the occasion.
Looking ahead to the future of the store, Mr Johnson is delighted to announce that the store will be moving to the Market Strand at the end of the summer, increasing their organic food range and going above and beyond customer expectations with good food and drink.
