Last night I was one of the lucky people invited to the launch party for the new Chester branch of Holland & Barrett which has moved down the road to the spot that Waitrose occupied. It’s a huge store with so much choice that it’s hard to know where to start.
The store showcases the ever growing Free From range of foods which are fab for anyone with allergies or food intolerances. Luckily I don’t have this to contend with, but as readers of my blog will know, my number one focus is looking after my heart and trying to find ways of minimising my premature atrial contractions, so I’m researching foods that will keep my blood sugar stable throughout the day. The sugar free foods are of great interest as are the different types of grains on offer.
I was motivated and inspired to hear how important it is to H&B to extend their Free From offering because the people behind it really care.
I had a good wander round the shop and see that there are some really fun things to do, like make your own scrubs (right up my aromatherapy street!) and get fresh juices made to go. Everything is beautifully presented so it will be a joy to shop there.
It was great to meet some other bloggers and some of the Free From food suppliers. Always good to chat with some like minded people!
