Let’s face it, it’s easy to get lost in the world of nutrition. When it comes to nutrition stores, one of the best tips we can give you is that every store is different. They have different products, sales techniques, education levels, and “ideal” customers.
Nutrition Stores can be an intimidating place for anyone new to health and wellness. The vast number of products, brands, advertisements, gimmicks, and promotions can leave you asking, “where do I even start?”
One of the first steps in figuring out where to start is understanding the question, “why do I need it?”
We spoke with the managers of Vitamin Shoppe, 5 Star Nutrition, and Nutrition World to help clarify their mission, who is the right customer for their store, and how they’re different from one another. Each store brings value to different types of customers and can be great places to shop depending on your goals.
In the following article, you will learn about the top three nutrition stores in Chattanooga and what makes them different.
Vitamin Shoppe prides itself on being a specialty destination for people striving to lead a healthy life. With over 700 locations nationwide, Vitamin Shoppe is positioned to bring supplements and nutritional products to the masses. Because Vitamin Shoppe is such a large company, they rely on local managers and team members to spread their message.
Heidi takes the message of Vitamin Shoppe to local events with free samples of their latest products. One of her favorite organizations she’s worked with so far is the Wounded Warrior Project. With such a meaningful purpose, the W.W.P. helps veterans who need help the most.
Vitamin Shoppe has a free rewards program where you earn between 1 and 1.5 points for every dollar you spend at the store depending on your reward tier. For every 125 points you earn, you get $5 credited to your account for future purchases. The points never expire as long as you make one purchase every 12 months.
To stay competitive with companies like Amazon and Walmart, Vitamin Shoppe is offering a new Auto Delivery Service. This is great for people who buy things often and like convenience. With this service comes a 10% discount on your recurring order.
5 Star Nutrition is built around the idea of achieving goals. They have a systematic approach for customer requests and work to help them develop a plan to succeed in their fitness journey.
Nutrition World has been serving Chattanooga since 1979. Founded by Ed Jones, Nutrition World has become a gathering place for people interested in health and wellness. Originally a dedicated health food store, they have become one of the most knowledgeable sources for all things related to natural health and nutrition. Today, they’re changing the game by creating a wellness center focused on an integrated approach to health and wellness. They offer a variety of services by a multitude of professionals directed at health education and empowerment.
