After four years in operation, Nature's Fresh has outgrown its White Marsh location. By mid-August, the owners plan to move the independently-owned health food store to a new location on Belair Road in Perry Hall.
"People are getting excited about it," co-owner Lisa Correlli said. "A lot of customers say they'll be even closer to us."
The business's current location at 11550 Philadelphia Rd. offers about 2,400 square feet of space. The new location at 9659 Belair Rd., a free-standing structure that previously held Bay Home Title, offers 3,200 square feet.
The additional footage will allow for a wider selection of groceries, pet food, supplements and beauty products. The store will continue to specialize in organic, natural, gluten-free and wellness-related products, Correlli said.
"There really is nothing else in the area like this. You have to go to Towson or Bel Air to find something similar," she said.
But customers should resist the urge to compare it to larger chains like Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. "It has a flavor of its own," she said.
Currently, only one employee works with Correlli and her co-owner husband, Domenic.
"After everything gets moved in, we hope to hire more," she said.
