The New Bristol Health Food Store

If you live in southwest Virginia or northeast Tennessee, be sure you make plans to visit The New Bristol Health Food Store located at 1600 Edgemont Ave., Bristol, TN 37620.

They’re open Mon – Fri: 10:00 am-5:30 pm, and their phone number is 423-968-1241.

Even if you’ve gone in the past, you’ll definitely want to go again! They’ve re-opened, and the store is clean, fresh, inviting, and friendly. Although they are small, they have a great selection of items to choose from, for gluten free (and non-gluten free alike). I found well-known gluten free items such as Udi’s, and discovered some new products as well. They have shelf-stable, refrigerated, and freezer products available.

Here’s just a few things you can find there: vitamins, herbs, groceries, ear candles, body care, detox, and pet supplies! You can sign-up on their mailing list for free classes as well. I asked about this, and was told that they worked on bringing in a variety of specialists, and then offered classes. I think that is well worth signing up for — you may not attend all of the classes, but you’re bound to find at least a few that will be helpful to you!

You can get a free mini-massage, listen to music, and even more! Be sure to stop by and support your local health food store!

I also learned that right now, you can get a massage on a walk-in basis, but once clientele builds up, expect to need an appointment. I can’t wait to get a massage! I’ve been on the look-out for a great masseuse since I moved to Abingdon in 2009! Whenever I get to go, I’ll tell you about my experience.
