Peter Gillham's in Downtown ClearwaterMost of the articles I write are health-related information to help educate you, the reader, by giving you information you can use to help improve your quality of life. So many of you have called or come into the store to thank us for what we do. Today I would like to thank each and every one of you for everything YOU do. Because of all of you Peter Gillham’s has been experiencing expansion like never before. Each of you has helped to contribute by supporting a small local business run by local people, and we in turn give back as a store by contributing to and supporting local community groups, and as individuals by our many hours of volunteer work in numerous city and private groups which help to make our city a better place to live. Together we are achieving this.

So, to thank each of you we would like to invite you to a very special 30th Anniversary celebration happening at the store on the 4th of December (which also happens to be the same day as the Miracle on Cleveland Street Celebration and the opening of Winter Wonderland). At our celebration you will be treated to tastes of all of the products we make in our café, as well as many we sell in the store. After all, you helped to select them, you should get a day to try them for free.

One of the most exciting things which has occurred in this expansion is the addition of some great new personnel. One of these people is Desiree Lotz who we are very proud to have on our staff . Desiree has over 30 years experience helping people with their health and nutrition and is available for consultations. She can do anything from a 15 minute basic vitamin check to a full one hour consult to check your nervous system, organs, allergies, diet, etc. With the flu season upon us it is a great idea to have your basics checked to make sure your immune system is strong and functioning properly. Please call the store for more information and to book your consultation. It is an affordable and invaluable service. Her schedule has been filling fast, so call today.

By your request we have expanded our café. From our surveys we have found that many of our customers can’t tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. So we have created a café menu that includes a host of homemade gluten free foods, including gluten-free pizza, organic soups, delicious natural sandwiches, our newly-famous scones, muffins, cookies, etc. And we will be adding new items in the near future like crust-less organic quiches, great chicken mole and a host of other dishes which will feature locally grown sustainable ingredients whenever available. Call our store today to get on our email list where you will receive a weekly newsletter which will include the week’s menu and email-only specials.

We are proud to be part of this community and happy to share it with such warm people. Thanks for your help.
