The Whole Store

We hear self care, natural, and wellness quite a bit so we all know that we need to make healthier choices. The questions is, where do we start? The Whole Store is an amazing local resource that offers natural foods, supplements, herbs, and more. Pat and the staff at The Whole Store are knowledgeable and able to answer many questions as you begin to make the small changes on your path to wellness.

In addition to supplements, teas, frozen and pantry food items, you can also find pet supplements and beauty care products. Most impressive is the wall of bulk herbs and resources to help you make wise decisions regarding your health.
