What’s your habit? With Spring officially at our doorstep, many are likely thinking of cleaning up their health routines, as well as their homes. Good thing Habit Natural Health opened in the ‘hood this past January, offering customers everything from vitamin supplements, to teas and other health-focused beverages and foods such as nuts, dried fruits, seeds, power bars, chips, pretzels, spices and baking ingredients. We recently spoke with owner and operator Alexi, who told us the shop is essentially her lifestyle in a store. “It’s really just about enjoying the basics in life,” she says. “I love helping people, and helping them realize the multiple options to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
When Alexi looked for a place to call Habit home, she was drawn to Vancouver’s East Village area because of its warm and positive vibe.
“It’s upcoming, and it feels new again. It has great energy and is really diverse,” she explains. “I like how it is smaller, and still filled with family-owned businesses. People in the area seem really warm and positive.”
With modern reclaimed wood and pipe shelving, sliding barn door and an eye-catching blackboard wall, the space at Habit feels warm and intimate, and makes a wonderful addition to our business district. Be sure to stop in to say hello, and have a look for yourself! Habit Natural Health is open located at 2307 East Hastings Street.
