We wanted to keep you in the loop of all the exciting changes happening at Island Natural. As many of you already know, we are now a part of the Pomme family. Pomme Natural Markets are owned by four partners - Craig, David, Rasool and Ed - all based in Victoria (you may have already met a few of them at the store!). Pomme has two other locations - one in Vancouver’s West End and another in Port Coquitlam - Island Natural is their first Vancouver Island store and the owners are all extremely happy to have a store on the island!
Casey and Rhonda were happy to pass the torch onto them and enjoy their time as customers instead of owners, but you’ll notice Island Natural’s staff has stayed the same. We have added a few new faces and grocery manager Doug has now stepped into the role of store manager.
While our awesome team has stayed the same, the store interior has not! Since February, we’ve been working on updating the store by adding more shelving, coolers and display areas and along with it, more product selection and new product lines. We’re continuing to bring in even more local groceries including more free-range and pastured meats, and great product lines to support BC’s eco-minded small businesses. These changes have meant we can offer even more organic produce, healthy living products and natural groceries!
Online, you’ll now find us at pommenaturalmarket.com where you can get our contact information, blog posts and advertised specials. Our new Pomme monthly flyer launches this August and we’ll feature sale items from every department with sale dates lasting the month. You’ll also want to be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter to stay tuned for a chance to win free groceries for a year!
We’ve all been enjoying working with the new owners and Pomme health specialists to update the store and are excited to be part of the Pomme team! Stay tuned for a re-launch this fall and we look forward to seeing you in-store soon!
