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:
