Weavers Way Opens Next Door Wellness and Beauty Store in Chestnut Hill


Philadelphia, PA, Nov. 5, 2013 — With a grand opening party scheduled for Friday, Nov. 8, from 5 to 7 p.m., Weavers Way Co-op will celebrate the newest addition to the Weavers Way family — Weavers Way Next Door, a wellness and beauty store “next door” to the Chestnut Hill grocery location.

The newly renovated 950-square-foot space at 8426 Germantown Ave. is brimming with natural and non-toxic health, wellness and beauty products.

Team “Next Door,” led by manager Amira Shell, had a wonderful time selecting eye-catching, pleasingly scented and Earth-friendly beauty aids, as well as vitamins, supplements, tinctures and tonics, at the recent Expo East, the East Coast’s largest trade show for natural beauty and wellness vendors.

Many of the items are new to Philadelphia or just plain new, including lip balms in compostable packaging, organic Mamma-and-Baby products and “potions” made with Old World herbal recipes. Need a psychic detox? There’s a body mist for that!

We’ve also discovered wonderful local manufacturers like Carrissa Griffing and her daughter, Mo, of Marvelous Mo & Me, who will be demonstrating their whimsical skin-care products from West Chester, PA. Their fabulous Peppermint Lip Scrub and Java Body Scrub provide a serious wake-up call!

Also on hand will be Green Vibrance superfoods, Volta soap, Reserveage Organics and Ultima healthy weight-management systems. Look for the bathtub out front, along with the Vega smoothie bike – a fixture at Co-op events. There will be nibbles and noshes from the Weavers Way kitchen, along with some celebratory bubblies and good vibrations from Celtic harp virtuoso (and Co-op member) Julia Haines.

Nov. 8 is also the debut of new benefit for Co-op members: a 5 percent discount on Weavers Way-brand vitamins and supplements. It’s a great time to sign up, and membership representatives will be on hand at the Next Door opening. 

Next Door is open 9 a.m.-8 p.m. seven days a week. Phone: 215-866-9150 ext. 220.
