Just in talks to buy this health store, down to the negotiating part right now. Fingers crossed it should be ours in the next month and takeover 1st October. Exciting stuff 8)

Sure, if you turn up I'll give you a good discount :wink:

No, it won't be exclusively vegan unfortunately. However we do sell pea and rice protein as well as some of the SunWarrior range. It's a franchise of 25+ stores across NZ with a really wide range of products ~ herbs, vitamins, sports supps, skincare/makeup, weight loss and so on.

Also has a couple of decent back rooms so there's the potential to use them for things such as massage, herbalist/naturopath etc.

Thanks for the well wishes guys.

Just in the negotiation stage right now, assuming we can all come to an agreement I think things should move quite fast from now. Will keep you in the loop ~ and apologies for not posting as much as I normally do right now. MF

All going well so far, aiming for a November 1st takeover. Pretty stressful but I think all of the major hurdles have been cleared now :wink:
