I discovered Saje Natural Wellness when they opened a store in Hamilton, Ontario at Limeridge Mall. I have always been interested in wellness and taking the Holistic Approach to my health and well being. So naturally I was intrigued when a Canadian company from Vancouver was expanding into the east of Canada.
If you don’t know what Saje is it is a wellness retailer founded by Jean-Pierre LeBlanc and Kate Ross LeBlanc in 1992, that has been introducing people to the healing power of 100% natural, plant-derived alternatives to pharmaceuticals. Read how I incorporate their products into my daily routine!
My three main reasons I have for loving Saje Natural Wellness are:
- The products
- The store atmosphere
- How the founders operate the company
First of all, the products! I currently have five or more of their personal wellness mists, and of course, eventually want to have all of them! Each one helps aid a health issue. The mists I currently love are; Quick Study (for mental alertness to wake myself up in the morning), Immune (to strengthen my immune systems against colds), and Sleep Well (to fall asleep easier at night).
The Store Atmosphere
Second of all, the store atmosphere! Every time I visit the Hamilton store or any store for that matter the team members are always welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Lastly, I admire Saje Wellness because of how the founders operate the company. As a customer it’s easy to see that they are doing something right. However, I’m studying retailing in school, and from a business standpoint their approach is untraditional and I feel that is what makes it so great. They view their customers as community members; they don’t have sales associates in their store or employees at their head office, they have team members. The ideology that Saje has created a team where everyone is seen as a valued member, and not as an employee creates better company morale and encourages people to come to work.
Moreover, the founders host wellness seminars and visit the stores to give presentations to educate their community members. Can you name the last time you went to your favourite store and got to meet the store founder? I certainly can’t. The seminars encourage the community to purchase the store items, as they get a 20% off for attending. Wouldn’t you want to support your own community? The founder comes in to speak with you about the company, their products, wellness and how these products can enhance your life.
