Anyone living in or around Dublin in recent times will have noticed the increase in people running, doing triathlons, duathlons, marathons, 5k’s, 10k’s, 20k’s, Run for Fun in the Sun, you name it, Dubliners are doing it (for themselves), taking a real interest in their own health, and this has resulted in a number of health food stores appearing on our streets in the last few years.
One such shop is the wonderful ‘Nourish’ on Liffey Street, which I discover to my surprise, was established over 25 years ago, so they’ve had plenty of time to hone their craft and indeed that’s the impression I get as I walk into the store looking for my trusty Vitamin D3.
The girls serving in the shop are very pleasant, always greet you with a smile and are exceptionally helpful and well informed about the products they sell (And I thought I knew about nutrition! Back to the drawing board).
One of the drawbacks of health foods and supplements is that they tend to be expensive, but Nourish have us covered, every week they offer various discounts on popular products, whether it’s € 5 off those fetching deep purple Krill oil tablets or 3 for 2 on all of the Trilogy skincare range.
“Build it and they will come” said Kevin Costner in ‘Field of Dreams’. Nourish have built it and the customers keep coming. Who knows, maybe KC will wander in one of these days, looking for some unhydrogenated raw organic cold pressed virgin olive oil, and no doubt, he’ll find it too, in Nourish.
