Simple Abundance, Red Wing’s locally owned health food store was started in 2000, with a dream and a tight budget. They take pride in offering a wide selection of products in a relatively small space.
Anna Boelman purchased the business from her mother Kiki in July of 2018. Anna spent 10 years working alongside Kiki before taking over the business, which over the years has grown little by little. Anna remarks as we toured the store, “Mom was very smart about how she grew the business.” She points out where a wall used to be and areas that have been repurposed allowing them to expand their product offering to their customers. A commercial kitchen was added 8 years ago. This is where they make their amazing smoothies!
They also offer a wide range of educational opportunities because they believe in nourishing not only their customers’ body, but mind and soul as well.
Be sure to keep Simple Abundance in mind for your upcoming Thanksgiving feasts. First, you will want to pre-order your turkey (10-22 lb), which is sourced locally from Ferndale in Cannon Falls. They arrive on the Friday, Nov 22nd, prior to Thanksgiving and are frozen. Additionally, you can purchase locally sourced produce such as potatoes, squash, onions, etc. They have wild rice in their bulk section. Perhaps you have somebody with dietary restrictions including gluten or dairy-free. They keep a supply for those needs as well.
Next time you’re downtown you will certainly want to stop in. They have a great selection of products and no matter what you’ll leave with some of their uplifting energy to take with you.
We thank Simple Abundance for being a DTMS Partner and for their contribution to our downtown and the community at large. We look forward to supporting their continued success!
