Mastel’s Health Foods (St. Paul, MN), an independently owned health food store that won Vitamin Retailer's 2021 Retailer of the Year award, has announced that it will now be owned and operated by two of its current employees. After years of dedicated service to the store, general manager Lauren Gaffney and marketing manager Alina Hornfeldt have purchased the store from the founder, John Mastel. They are eager to continue providing the community with healthy, natural supplements and organic food options.
“We are thrilled to take the helm of this beloved community institution and build upon its legacy,” said Gaffney. “Our goal is to continue offering the same commitment to quality and wellness while exploring new and innovative ways to serve our customers.” Founded 55 years ago, the store is renowned for its knowledgeable staff, who are dedicated to helping customers make informed decisions about their health and wellness.
"We are passionate about the wellness industry and are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality products and services," said Hornfeldt. "We believe in the power of supplements to improve health and well-being and are committed to helping our community live their healthiest lives."
Under the new ownership, Mastel’s Health Foods will continue to offer the same quality products and exceptional customer service that customers have come to know and love. The store will also expand its offerings to include new products and services to meet the community's changing needs.
"We are excited for the future of Mastel’s and look forward to serving our community for many years to come," said Gaffney.
“We have been a part of this store for years, and we are passionate about its mission to help people lead healthier lives,” said Hornfeldt. “We are grateful for the opportunity to carry on this important work and positively impact our community.”
The transition to new ownership will be seamless, and customers can expect the same level of service and quality they have come to expect from the store. The new owners are eager to continue serving the community and to provide a welcoming and educational environment for all customers.
