New ownership will be in place beginning April 4, 2009.

The store’s new management team has multiple international certifications and degrees in sports science, training and nutrition. The philosophy behind Nutrishop ( which sets them apart from other supplement retailers is their attention to every detail that will help you lose weight, build muscle, lower cholesterol, reduce acidity or just generally achieve your health goals.
