One of Estevan’s best kept secrets lies within the walls of Nutter’s Bulk and Natural Foods. Voted best bulk food in town, Nutter’s actually offers much more than its name suggests. “We are so much more than just nuts and bulk,” said Lesa Seipp, the store owner.
Nutter’s Bulk and Natural Foods is more justly described as a general health and wellness store, selling everything from vitamins to natural beauty products and wholesome food alternatives. Specializing in gluten-free, vegan, and organic options, Nutter’s makes serving its community the number one priority. That is why demos on readily-made dishes and healthy food alternatives, such as cacao chocolates and bean chips, are regularly hosted. “We want to get the community comfortable with using these alternatives,” Seipp said, explaining that they are often less processed and more locally sourced than other items found on grocery store shelves.
Though, Nutter’s crusade to healthy living is not limited to what we eat. Its natural beauty department features skin and hair care products as well as make up. “People don’t realize that what we put on our skin is much more than skin deep,” Seipp added. The beauty care products at Nutter’s nourish and sit on the skin, rather than sink into it, like many common beauty products do.
As health enthusiasts, the amazingly knowledgeable staff at Nutter’s Bulk and Natural Food make it their mission to serve their customers, first and foremost. Whether it is answering obscure questions about the benefits of green tea extract or explaining how magnesium can be used as a natural pain relief alternative, they make a point of sharing their depths of wisdom with the folks of Estevan. As Seipp put it, “we’re better thought of as selling nuts and bulk foods – plus so much more.”
