The shop has recently re-located from an old small unit to a large modern air conditioned unit, located within a shopping centre. It benefits from new shop fittings.
The shopping centre benefits from increased footfall, with nearby retailers including Card Factory and The Post Office as well as a wonderful range of other independent businesses together with a secure location, security personnel and waste disposal services.
The relocation has enabled expansion into the increasing popular plastic free supply, which includes refills of ethical body care and home care products, as well as loose food.
The business prides itself on being very ethical and stocks a wide range of organic, gluten free, vegan and speciality food.
The main area of the business is the sale of supplements such as herbal remedies, food supplements, vitamins and minerals.
Also stocked is a range of body care, household products, ethical gifts and home brew.
There is a growing range of products from local suppliers, such as eco products and soaps.
The business benefits from Shopify POS & a full e-commerce website www.ecohealth.shop which integrates into eBay
The POS system makes ordering stock very easy and the shop is easy to manage.
We are very active on social media Facebook and Instagram @ecohealthshop
It has a 5 star food hygiene rating.
There is potential to expand into treatment rooms for a wide range of holistic therapies.
This is a wonderful lifestyle changing opportunity for anyone with an interest in health, well-being and ethical products. There is plenty of opportunity to expand the business with the right person and a little time

With the impact of Covid-19, we are an essential business and have remained open throughout. We would have expected the turnover to have carried on going up but with decreased footfall nationwide, we now expect this years turnover to be very similar due to the increase in on-line ordering, the quick investment in the website and the increased use of click and collect. This figure is improving all the time as we move further away from the initial impact of the first lockdown in March 2020
Genuine buyers only please. If you are enquiring from outside the area, please explain why or we will not contact you
