Editor’s note: We are so excited to feature Campbell’s Nutrition on this series for many reasons, including that their location at 42nd Street and University Avenue in Des Moines is now only a few blocks away from our clinic. We all love to pop in for snacks, quick bites and groceries. Their team is so helpful, whether you’re looking for a specific item or hoping to learn more about a supplement. If you haven’t been, try it!
1.Tell us a bit about Campbell’s. How and when was it founded? How has it evolved? What is it today?
Campbell’s Nutrition was founded in 1937, before health food stores were common and way before wellness and self-care were mainstream. Campbell’s gets its name from its founder, Floyd M. Campbell, who opened a lunch counter in downtown Des Moines and offered his customers fresh juices, sandwiches, salads, herbal teas with local honey, and more. Today, Campbell’s is recognized as Iowa’s first and oldest health food store, as well as the third oldest nationally. We are a place for conscious consumers to get groceries, nutritional supplements, bulk herbs, home goods, nutritional books, and more.
2. What makes Campbell’s approach unique?
We know that our customers are socially aware and care about where their purchases come from. Campbell’s has strict standards for any product allowed in our stores. This means carefully vetting suppliers to ensure quality products and sustainable business practices. Shopping here means that your products are clean, sustainable, healthy and as local as possible.
3. How does Campbell’s help people?
Campbell’s prides itself on offering personal attention to its customers. Shopping here means access to advice from people who have been in the industry for more than 20 years.
4. What’s one thing people should know about Campbell’s if they’ve never been?
You’ve got to see it to believe it! Nowhere in Des Moines will you find more supplements in one place. Our produce is exceptionally fresh and 100 percent organic. You’ll see a lot of local vendors–we believe in the power of eating and buying local. I’ve heard it time and time again from people on their first trip into Campbell’s: It’s hard to believe a locally-owned store in Iowa like this exists!
5. What does you/your team love about the Greater Des Moines community?
We love seeing more and more people who are united in the love of clean products that protect the health of people and the planet.
6. What’s next?
We are always looking to the future, to carry the best and latest for our customers. Like Floyd M. Campbell establishing a health food store in the 1930s, Campbell’s today strives to be ahead of its time. From innovative nutrition science to traditional healing wisdom, we’re here to share knowledge and give your body what it needs to live radiantly.
