Hi there, my name is Dawn and I founded Bury Wholefoods.
It all started back when I was a dancer. I led a strict lifestyle, knowing that to grow in my field of work I needed to be responsible for leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
The career is a short one though and soon it was time that I had to make the brave decision to stop. Injuries from pushing myself to the extremes were becoming all too apparent. In addition, I also developed IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Years passed where I continued to lead the healthiest lifestyle I could to control my new-found condition: Growing my own vegetables in the garden, hula-hooping my way around the living room and walking for miles and miles along our beautiful Suffolk coastline. Although I was caring for myself, I realised that the environment around me was still suffering.
I needed a detox to spark up innovative ideas. I wanted to trigger new liveliness into the way we live. So, I took myself off to a health retreat and a little break to Cornwall. While there I stumbled across a health food shop, I realised this was what Bury was missing; my concept for Bury Wholefoods was born.
Why use us?
- We offer a door to door service, so it’s a little bit more personal – if you live within a 10-mile radius of Bury St Edmunds you may like to take advantage of our delivery service with a smile. A member of the Bury Wholefood team delivers your items direct to your door the next working day.* We are unable to offer this personal service outside of the catchment zone right now, but be sure, if you live within the U.K, you can still place orders and have them delivered within 5 working days.
- We stock brands that are local to East Anglia, so not only are we helping you lead a more sustainable, environmentally friendly lifestyle, but you are giving back to the neighbourhood. This encourages the zero-waste philosophy that our business grows on. You can also shop by dietary requirement, which makes it ever-so easy when you are looking for gluten free, dairy free or vegan food.
- Bury Wholefoods offers a Zero Waste mobile refill service for customers within a 10-mile radius of Bury St Edmunds. It applies to selected products such as seeds, nuts, rice, and eco-friendly household detergents. So, rather than taking an extra trip out or throwing away old packaging, we will save you from harming our environment and personally deliver a refill of your favourite product straight to your door.
*Personal delivery service is subject to a minimum of £15 spent on our online shop.
