chain of retail supplement
stores, Elite Nutrition
opened in Henderson,
Nevada, in 1988 and is still

as long as 20 years) because
of our great low prices, quality
products and informed
staff,” explains store manager
Offering full lines of vitamin
supplements, herbs and sports products,
Elite Nutrition “is a great place to work
because of the healthy atmosphere and the
friendly customers,” says Patty after 14
years of working at Elite Nutrition.

Known as the source for local, organic food in Des Moines,
Iowa, Campbell's Nutrition is a natural foods grocery store,
carrying a broad range of health-promoting products.
“We are a blend of organic and natural groceries, supplements
and body-care products, and we cater to those who want a healthy
lifestyle,” says manager Stephanie Clemens, who enjoys being a
part of the family-owned and locally operated business.
Having watched the health food industry come into its own during
the past few decades, Stephanie says she appreciates the
advances made in product variety and quality. It’s much easier now
to eat a healthy vegetarian diet than it was when she first became a
vegetarian some 18 years ago, she says, noting she shops at Campbell’s
and especially enjoys the fresh seasonal produce the store
purchases from local area farmers.
“I love that we support local farmers whenever possible,” she
adds. In addition to the mouth-watering local fruits and vegetables,
customers often come in looking for specific products, which they
may read about in Healthy Living magazine. “Our large clientele
includes people in all stages of living a healthy lifestyle,” says
Stephanie. Some people come in knowing what they want, while others
are looking for direction or advice, based on certain ailments
they want to heal.
Fish oil, probiotics and multivitamin supplements are among the
bestsellers in the store. And if customers want more information or
guidance, Campbell’s works with local naturopaths and nutritionists
to help their customers find the healing they need.
With more than 75 years in the area, Campbell’s Nutrition has
been a “staple in the community for quite some time,” says
They offer a free email newsletter with great health tips and special
promotions too. Sign up online at www.campbellsnutrition.com,
