We are Niagara's original health food store, celebrating over 40 years in business!
If you have never met the owner, Robert McKay, he has his own style... friendly, confident and is the only person in the plaza wearing shorts regardless of the time of year or weather. He has his own way of doing things and of speaking with his customers and passers-by! What began as a temporary position to help out his family turned into a 40 year career.
Many people in our society are looking for ways to be emotionally balanced and physically healthy, with energy to play, work, and simply enjoy life.
Vita has been expanding and revising product lines to accommodate the changing needs of our customers. We take pride in providing our customers with courteous and confidential service in a relaxing atmosphere. We offer a wide selection of high quality, wholesome, and organic products which are good for the environment and good for the body.
Vita offers a Customer Loyalty Program, a Customer Appreciation Day, and we offer seniors a discount on select supplements. Our staff has knowledge of different alternative health therapies and provides our customers with insight to the many options available to them. Our reputation has been built on providing a wide selection of products and great service and will continue to do so for future generations of health conscious consumers.
