Who are we? What are we all about?
We do talk loads about your health and wellness journey, don’t we? And we always say we’re community-focused and well, obviously, we’re a health and wellness store… but what really sets the Wellness Exchange apart?
And just *how* invested are we really in your wellness … and how can you make the most of your experience with us?
Whether you’re a first timer to our store or you’ve been a familiar face around here from the beginning, we wanted to share with you the top 5 ways we’re here to support you.
So that you can get the most out of our community and soak up every aspect of The Wellness Exchange experience.
From our warm, inviting environment to the community events we host to every product on our shelves – each aspect of the Wellness Exchange has been intentionally created to support your wellness journey. That’s our promise.
We’re not just here to sell you products but to create connections… Connections with the greater community, with hardworking, local entrepreneurs, with choices that help you sustain your health goals and connections within yourself – as you explore foods and products that nourish the whole you.
Your unique journey matters to us at The Wellness Exchange
We don’t believe that wellness looks like any one specific thing… your journey is unique and is made up of your intentional choices – lots of them – which support you living your most authentic life everyday.
That means your reasons for dropping by The Wellness Exchange could be anything from checking out a natural ice cream brand for those midnight cravings to learning more about supplements to help you fight some health concerns. Whatever the reason – we believe you should have choices that suit you and your journey – which is why we’re so proud to carry the largest selection of wellness products in New Brunswick!
Here are 5 essential aspects of The Wellness Exchange experience that we will simply never compromise on because they’re irreplaceable in allowing us to support your whole wellness journey.
Our commitment to your wellness begins the moment you open our door. We want you to feel welcomed the moment you arrive, at-ease as you browse and supported by our friendly, informed staff.
Let’s just get that right out in the open. When you think about all of the things which help you be most you – you know that your surroundings matter. We’re constantly absorbing our environment – consciously or unconsciously – and our minds and bodies are affected by either the peace or chaos of any atmosphere.
In the Spring and Summer you’ll be met with inviting, bright products so you feel all the sunshiney joy of these fresh seasons. As Fall arrives, we totally soak up the opportunity to offer a warm, cozy environment with easy-to-reach tea and latte mixes, the perfectly-scented fall candle and nourishing foods to keep your health on-track in the Back-To-Fall hype. The Holidays are truly one of our favourite seasons to go all-out in creating the perfect environment to welcome you in from the cold and chaos of shopping so that you can enjoy every second of your stop with us.
Let’s be honest, there’s enough hustle and bustle out there–
Maintaining our welcoming environment is something we’ll never waiver on because we believe that safe spaces where you can take a deep breath and exhale – are essential to everyone’s wellness journey.
Community is at the heart of everything we do.
We strive to make sure it distinguishes our in-store experience. Let’s just say self checkouts won’t be finding their way in our stores any time soon… because connecting with you and ensuring we’re available to be present to your journey is a fundamental aspect of The Wellness Exchange.
As much as we all like to crown self-sufficiency as an honour – we actually know that our true wellness journeys require a community of support and judgement-free spaces where we can explore our wellness choices without pressure or expectation.
That’s where our one-of-a-kind staff – with their infectious personalities and genuine interest in your wellness – take your in-store shopping experience to the next level.
Wellness and authentic community go hand in hand. Creating connection and fostering community will always be at the heart of what we do.
Naturally Nourishing Products (+ products that nourish nature!)
It should be simple to make choices that genuinely support your everyday health and wellness. Shopping shouldn’t be filled with trying to read through hidden, tiny-printed, unreadable ingredients in your products. We’ve heard too many stories of people realizing the long-lasting effects of chemicals and preservatives in the foods they’ve eaten and the products they once trusted.
We are firm believers in the wonder of the earth and its ability to heal us and sustain our whole, long-term wellness.
Learning to shop and choose natural foods and products means decreasing risks of disease and sickness, supporting – instead of hindering – everyday wellness in both the body and the mind and cultivating consciousness of the whole, connected you.
The GREAT news in 2022 is that there are plenty of passionate individuals and companies who are making your wellness journey so much easier.
Our job at The Wellness Exchange is to do the research for you – discover these trustworthy brands, scour the ingredients lists and make sure that every choice you make in our store is one you can trust.
Our love for all things natural means we’re huge advocates of preserving our natural environment – which is why we’re so proud to carry a huge selection of eco-friendly products – made by brands who share our appreciation for the wonder of Mama Earth.
We also have a massive bulk-reuse refillery section where you can stock up on all your essentials – from laundry soap to baking ingredients and everything in-between, using your own containers and producing zero waste.
Committed to the Local Love
We are all about the local love – and the past two years have only strengthened our passion for connecting you with the local community. We’re adamant that everyone benefits when our local communities support one another and we’re so proud to be home to many of these connections!
The Wellness Exchange is a place where you can hear about local, real life stories of hardworking, creative entrepreneurs who have a passion for creating a better world and making health choices easier for you.
Like the unbelievably delicious Belly’s hot sauce made with fresh ingredients locally grown! Or NB’s own White Nest candles available in every naturally luxurious scent you could imagine. Or the coffee guys at Epoch coffee who are based just around the corner and are pouring their passion into making exquisite fair trade coffee available here. The list of real life – local – people who are invested in our community goes on and on… and one of our major goals is to help connect you with them to cultivate a stronger, healthier community.
Community Events + Pop Ups
We absolutely love hosting community events and in-store pop ups – and like that aunt who always insists on hosting Christmas dinner each year – we don’t plan on giving up our event hostings and gatherings any time soon!
Our Earth Day garbage clean up is always a huge success where we invite our friends to join us in a city-wide clean up. Our Holiday markets are the loveliest way to connect and enjoy festive cheer while trying out new goodies and shopping for your loved ones. Our Spring pop-ups are chock-full of the most gorgeous bouquets from local flower shops you’ve ever seen and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Whatever the season or celebration – we’re truly here to enjoy it with you and our events are a huge part of how we can do that. (Psst… sign up for our Newsletter and follow us on Social Media to make sure you get the invites!)
So, when we say we’re here for your journey… we really, really mean it.
Your wellness journey might look like learning a new diet to accommodate recurring stomach problems… or a new-found desire to eliminate harmful chemicals from your life. It could look like trying out new recipes with ingredients that are working for – instead of against – your wellness. Maybe you’re ready to swap out your skincare for new products with ingredients that actually nourish you instead of prolonging problems. Maybe you’re simply switching up your Christmas gifts this year to give more thoughtful gifts to your loved ones.
Or… maybe you just need a space where you feel safe to ask questions and connect with the community.
We know that for however many customers we have – there are that many unique journeys and stories entering our store. And that’s why we’re here for – specifically – you.
Stop by and enjoy our intentionally-curated Wellness Exchange Experience – we’ll be here 🙂
