And no matter your preference in coffee (regular, decaf or flavored) they are brewed – fresh, hot and of course, organic! Ever had an Italian Soda or a New York Egg Cream? You can partake of these freshly made drinks in PG’s Café, too!
Under the direction of store manager Shelley Jaffe, Peter Gillham’s Nutrition Center has undergone a major transformation and renovation to make it more customer-friendly and accessible. Customers are raving about how light and welcoming the shop is as well as the friendly and courteous service.
In addition to the complete line of Gillham’s Natural Vitality line of supplements, there are products from a variety of other suppliers ranging from vitamins to foods and sundries. A fresh selection of organic produce is also for sale. Any products that are carried in the store go through a rigorous selective process for quality and origin, according to Ms. Jaffe.
For example, the coffee is not only organic but “fairly-traded”, meaning that the growers are paid higher than fair trade and are inspected to make sure they are paying their employees a fair wage. The company will spend upwards of $800,000 a year on community services for the workers and the farms. This all aligns with the philosophy of the store: to provide customers with the best quality products that are also ethically made.
Not only are the products that are sold at Peter Gillham’s natural and organic, even the bags that are used are biodegradable. They are made of corn, not plastic, so they can fully break down and not pollute the environment.
Art from local artists adorn the walls and soon musicians and poets will perform their respective arts in the café area.
Whether you want a healthy lunch or a quick pick-me-up, PG’s Café is the place to go. And while you are there you can choose from a complete selection of natural vitamins and supplements for a healthier you.
