I've been supporting this store for the past few years we've lived here but I find time and time again customer service and satisfaction is not a priority. I returned a dozen eggs because the hens mus...t have been broody and the eggs were rotten and gross. No refund. No offer to exchange the product. No assurance of letting the farmer know. What's the point. Too expensive to throw money away.

Last week we bought sauerkraut. They added no bribe so we got it home and it was the driest most disappointing part of the meal. No point in discussing it as it doesn't seem to resonate. Too bad. Has a lot of potential and we need stores like this. I've tried but the value of a dollar is too important to waste.

So glad this store/eatery has opened. But went for a bowl of the delicious and famous soup on a horrid, wet and windy Ocober day and it was sold out! It was only 1pm. Still lunch hour in my book.

Hey All Powell River friends!

The Food Bank needs bigger space and are moving out of the Ecossentials building! So I need to find a new tenant! Please share and... keep your ears open!

1100 sq feet with the potential of doubling that with opening up the wall to the space next door.
