“We want people to live life well by offering a 360º approach to wellness- a holistic, sustainable and transformative approach that delivers results by uniting people and product through experience. The Wellness revolution is not a fad or a trend; it’s a way of existing in the world that permeates every aspect of our lifestyle. It influences the way we eat, exercise, sleep, work, age and think.”
Established in 2007, Wellness Warehouse is the combined inspiration of brothers Sean & Carlos Gomes.
Sean is a medical doctor with a passion for preventative health and Carlos is a pioneer and health-obsessed visionary with a lifetime of retail experience. With their combined skills in retail and medicine they created the first store in South Africa with the sole purpose of offering a comprehensive list of health and wellness products to help you to live life well.
We got in touch with this super cool retailer to hear what they had to say:
We’ve come a long way with you guys, what were your thoughts when we first got in touch?
The Happy Earth People product range is a very unique range as well as gluten-free, which is a huge focus for Wellness Warehouse. This is one of the things that attracted us to these products in 2016.
Would you say that conscious consumption has increased?
Absolutely, the demand for conscious food products is growing and fast becoming a global trend. We plan to support more independent businesses that focus on sustainability, this is certainly a point of differentiation for Wellness Warehouse.
What has the feedback from customers been concerning our product range?
Business is based on sales figures and we review products regularly. They sell very well, meaning that our customers are very happy and keep coming back 🙂
