Downtown Vancouver is getting a health boost., Canada’s fast-growing online vitamin, supplement and health food store, opened their flagship retail location at 551 Robson Street on February 1st, 2019. began as an online store on a mission to make health accessible and affordable for all Canadians. In 2016, added an offline presence, with its first retail location in North Vancouver, and now they are opening a 2100 square foot flagship store downtown.

“We can now serve downtown Vancouver just as we do in North Vancouver, where we have created a real community,” explained Adam Assadkhan, who co-founded the company along with his brothers, Ali and Amir.

Vitasave offers thousands of top-quality natural health products across hundreds of brands, from vitamins and supplements to bath and beauty products, to herbs, natural household products and pet products – all at 25 - 40% below traditional retail costs. Vitasave’s new Vancouver store will provide the large selection of brands it carries online, along with a knowledgeable staff who have backgrounds in nutrition and holistic health, and its signature plant-based smoothie bar.

“Our staff are passionate, friendly Certified Holistic Nutritionists, eager to answer your questions and help you achieve your health and wellness goals,” Adam said.

The other huge attraction for visiting Vitasave’s central new location is their highly acclaimed Superfood Smoothie Bar. “A really big focus for us is our Superfood Smoothie Bar,” he added. “Our smoothies are extremely popular at our North Van location. They’re perfect for those who are living active, fast-paced lifestyles.” Each smoothie packs organic whole foods and premium superfoods designed to be nutrient-dense and delicious. “Our smoothies cost under eight bucks. If you were trying to get something comparable it would probably be twice that price. Our smoothies are super healthy, and more importantly, they taste incredible.”

Take, for instance, the Maca Monkey, one of his favourites. Along with bananas and peanut butter, it includes sprouted organic chocolate protein made from five types of non-GMO sprouted grains and seeds that contain nine essential and non-essential amino acids. It provides over 20 grams of organic, plant-based protein with a decadent chocolate-y flavour. There are also three superfoods in this smoothie: maca root powder, hemp hearts and cacao nibs.

Adam said a younger demographic is becoming more and more interested in health and health products. “With a younger demographic interested in natural health, it’s important for us to educate and serve them. Nobody downtown is really serving the community in terms of natural health products and education. That was a huge factor in opening the downtown location. I believe there is a strong demand for a better tasting smoothie option that serves a nutritional purpose. We describe our smoothies as ‘flavour meets function’. With an overwhelming amount of information on health, we know the importance of having proper education for everyone. To do this, we have certified nutritionists on hand at all times.”

The store will also be hosting talks and seminars monthly with experts from health-related fields.

“For us, the question is always ‘how can we offer our customers the most value?’ So, we do that in our prices, our services, our education, our in-store events and our smoothies,” he said. Customers can enjoy 20% off storewide over three days, spanning from March 1-3. With Vitasave’s already lowest prices guaranteed, that’s a huge saving of 45-60% across all brands.
