"A jem in a food desert"

For this post, I would like to quote an anonymous reviewer of our newest retail location, the New Earth Health Food Store in Compton, California, which has been going strong for 30 years!:

"This place is a jem! I couldn't believe how well-stocked their room of herbs, teas, etc. was. They sell hard-to-find healthy products in a virtual food desert. The nearest Whole Foods or Trader Joe's is anywhere between 25 and 30 minutes away and they have products that you can't even find in those stores. Don't get me wrong, it is a tiny store. Their refrigerated items are much more limited, but they have a bulk nut section that is organic with prices that rival much larger stores. They sell food, sundries, and some prepared foods. I would definitely recommend this place. I can see why they've been in the neighborhood for 20-something years. Who knew there was health food in the hood???"

It was reviews like this that made us send them a sample, and now we are so happy they said yes, because starting next week, Rox Chox will be available to the folks in Compton, which is really close to River's roots in Long Beach. <3 Everyone deserves a healthy treat.
