Funny how things work out


The funniest thing happened today. Well, not funny-funny but “funny” in the way of how things happen for a reason and coincidences.

We get emails every day for all kinds of reasons, usually customers asking if we have certain products and inquiries from potential vendors telling us about their products. Today we received one of those inquiries that made me go “Hrrmm…interesting.”

The email was from a guy named Ray, telling us about a new product called Heart Juice. He described it as “an all-natural beverage formulated for heart health and is fortified with Hawthorn and Resveratrol along with 5 other heart healthy ingredients.” I looked up their website and read a little about it – all-natural, 20 calories per bottle, antioxidant-rich ingredients such as hawthorn, resveratrol, garlic, pomegranate and green tea.  – and they’re local, from Wayne, NJ. I forwarded the email to our Grocery Manager Owen and told him a little bit about them.

About a half hour later, I’m out by the front and a man comes up to introduce himself to me. “Hi, I’m John, I’m from Heart Juice…” “Really? I seriously JUST emailed you guys back! Owen, remember the company I was telling you about a few minutes ago? Ta-daaa!” Turns out his partner got the email, not even knowing his associate was right there in one of our stores.

Owen and John spoke for a bit and right there we knew, this product was something completely different and special – specifically formulated for heart health and also totally on-point with our mission to raise health awareness and change people’s lives. What a great fit.

An hour later, Heart Juice is on our shelves.

(Ocean location only for now) In BOTH stores now!

  1. This sounds great!! Everyone needs to be aware how important heart health is! All of these “energy drinks” full of stimulants and artificial “crap” are doing such a disservice to our bodies. It is so nice to see that somebody is making something that will possibly change the way their competitors mindset is. More companies need to think about the customers and what they are putting out there.. not just the bottom line. Hats of to Heart Juice and Hats off to you guys for bringing on theis new product !!! I can not wait to try some!!
