Throughout October, Surrey’s Organic Grocer celebrates its 26th anniversary with giveaways, product demos and daily discounts.

Organic Grocer makes #LivingTheEthicalLife easier than ever

26th anniversary sale offers deals, discounts and free consultations for shoppers

Surrey’s Organic Grocer takes its #LivingTheEthicalLife hashtag seriously.

In fact, while the store launched the hashtag in 2018, it’s been breaking down barriers to ethical purchases for more than two decades!

As the locally owned and operated Organic Grocer marks 26 years and a growing interest in local, environmentally friendly products, they continue to help shoppers make ethical choices with ease.

Lisa Ayres, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist who’s been working at The Organic Grocer for over 7 years, knows it can feel overwhelming when consumers attempt to find products that cause less harm.

“We’re trying to promote products that are ethically produced, that lessen your load on Mother Earth, that are non-GMO,” she says.

3 Ways Organic Grocer makes ethical shopping easier

1. Curated Selection – Every product in store is vetted before it hits the shelves, which means that once you make the choice to come inside you can stop worrying about the fine print.

“We’re very strict about what we carry. We do a lot of research, especially into our supplements,” Ayres says.

While many products make vague or uncertified claims, she and other staff members look into everything on the label before putting items on the shelf.

Whether you prioritise local producers, organic certification, environmental concerns, dietary restrictions, or some combination, the Organic Grocer has you covered.

“We source local wherever possible for our produce as well as our supplements and our groceries.”

2. Free Consultations – Questions about specific dietary needs, health concerns, or fitness goals? Enjoy free consultations in store with knowledgeable professionals. The store boasts a master herbalist, registered holistic nutritionist, chiropractic doctor and digestive care specialist, and hosts regular visits from a naturopath, an aesthetician and other specialists.

Sign-up at the till or online for monthly clinics, or stop by the store for advice.

3. Knowledgeable Staff – Not only are staff trained, educated and certified, but they’re living the life themselves. Some are vegan, others follow strict allergy diets, or eat gluten-free. That first-hand experience can be invaluable to a novice who’s just been advised to change their lifestyle.

“We’ll guide people through the store and help them find foods that fit their diet, give them cooking tips and that kind of thing if they’re starting something new.”

Join the celebration!
