January 30, 2019

Company News: Healthy Living Announces New Location and Invites Town of Shelburne to Partner on New Fire and Rescue Station 

Healthy Living & Cafe today announced plans to open its third store in Shelburne, VT. This will be the company’s second location in Vermont; the flagship location is located on Dorset Street in South Burlington, the other in Saratoga Springs, NY. 

The new location will bring a full-service natural foods supermarket and cafe to the Shelburne community. Healthy Living (HLM) is known for having the most stringent product ingredient standards of any grocery store in the area and for its commitment to working with local growers, brands, producers, and farmers. 

HLM has entered into an agreement with the Carroll family to purchase Lot #6 of the Rice Lumber redevelopment. Healthy Living plans a new 18,000-square-foot market and cafe on the property. Lot #6 is located immediately adjacent to Shelburne Commons with which it will share the existing traffic signal opposite Longmeadow Drive. 

Lot #6 has more land than needed for HLM’s project. In seeking another user to share the site, Healthy Living learned that the fire and rescue departments had identified Lot #6 as their preferred location. HLM has been working with the town of Shelburne on the concept of sharing Lot #6. 

Eli Lesser-Goldsmith, CEO and Co-owner of Healthy Living said: “We are very pleased to support the town in improving the fire and rescue services. We think the Rice Property on Shelburne Road is a great location and partnering with the town on the fire and rescue station is a winning combination. 

The planned store in Shelburne will offer a salad and hot prepared foods bar, organic juice and smoothie station, fresh sushi prepared on-site, as well as Healthy Living’s award-winning produce and meat selections and more. 

HLM hopes to complete plans and obtain all required permits over the next year, beginning construction in 2020. 

Lesser-Goldsmith added: “We’re extremely excited to join the community of Shelburne. Many of our guests live in Shelburne and nearby communities, including Charlotte, Hinesburg, and Ferrisburgh. Our new store will be more convenient for them and help the environment by reducing their drive miles to reach our store. We look forward to becoming a strong and positive contributor to Shelburne and do our part to make it an ever-better place to live, work, and raise a family.
