Natural Health, that started as a small, multi-purpose, health food store 40 years ago, is celebrating by offering 40 percent off select products in every department beginning on March 1. Owner Greg Politowski launched the business—that serves Camden, Gloucester and Burlington County and is conveniently located 15 minutes from Philadelphia in Clementon, NJ—as a result of his passion for organic farming and physical fitness.
Back then, he was learning about proper nutrition to achieve his own healthy lifestyle. In 1976, he found that food stores and other food distributors weren’t properly addressing their customers’ nutritional needs. With his background in organic farming and beekeeping, Politowski knew what makes food nutritious. Taking matters into his own hands, he got in touch with suppliers of healthy foods and vitamins that satisfy people’s need for better nutrition. After working closely with several health clubs to provide such products, he decided to open his own store, Natural Health, on March 1, 1976.
Today, Natural Health has grown into a natural food supermarket, filled with over 4,000 square feet of organic produce, bulk herbs and spices, vitamins, frozen and refrigerated foods and sports supplements. The store also boasts a wide variety of bulk nuts, homeopathic remedies, macrobiotics and gluten-free products.
Each member of the Natural Health team is committed to providing the very best in personalized customer service, something that can sometimes be hard to come by in today’s fast-paced world. Paying individual attention to customers’ needs has always been a hallmark at Natural Health.
Kate, the ordering manager for Natural Health, has been with the business for over 38 years and helps customers with ordering just about any hard-to-find products including nutraceuticals, natural foods, organic pet supplies, allergy-free, or non-GMO products. Lori manages the bulk herb department, carries organic and non-GMO herbs, and if you need something special she would be happy to order it for you. Halsey has been with Natural Health for 15 years and manages the men’s health, sports-fitness departments and is also the beverage and bulk food buyer. Carol manages the women’s health department and can recommend the perfect solution for your health and beauty needs including hundreds of essential oils. Joe is the expert on frozen and specialty foods including local honey and is also very knowledgeable in vegetarian, vegan, and paleo-inspired diets.
