SHOPPERS who wish to stay healthy while on the move can obtain nutritional advice from a new store in Warminster.

Holland & Barrett, the UK and Ireland’s leading health food chain, has opened a new store in the Three Horseshoes Walk shopping centre.

The new store showcases the latest concepts in specialist food, ethical beauty and sports nutrition.

Warminster store manager Stephen Slade said: “This is an exciting time for Warminster.

"We look forward to welcoming existing and new customers in store to share the latest products and concepts in the health food, beauty and sports categories.”

The new branch has created one new job and relocated four existing jobs, including a store manager, two supervisors and three sales associates.

All Holland & Barrett store associates have the equivalent of an A-level in nutrition and are therefore qualified to advise customers on the best ways of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and supplementation.

Holland & Barrett also stocks a wide variety of chilled and frozen foods for dietary requirements including vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs.

The company is Europe’s largest health and wellness retailer with a broad range of vitamins, supplements, specialist food, sports nutrition and ethical beauty brands.

Established in 1870, it is owned by the Letter One Retail Group and operates more than 1,300 stores worldwide, including more than 800 in the UK and Ireland, as well as a rapidly expanding e-commerce business.

All its staff are highly trained in nutrition and supplements and are able to advise customers on their individual needs.
