Community members gathered to celebrate the Grand Opening of Lighten Up Therapy & Wellness in Vermilion on June 14.
Staff and representatives of the Town kicked the event off with a ribbon cutting ceremony, and a barbeque complete with sides and cupcakes was soon underway. Throughout the afternoon, customers enjoyed shopping and seeing what products and services were available, as well as the hourly specials and a promotional spinning wheel that gave the option to win free items. Proceeds from the barbeque went to support the Vermilion and Area Crisis Line. The store offers health food supplements and essential oils, natural bath and body products, crystals and jewellery, giftware, and wellness books. There is also an infrared sauna and ionic foot detox room, as well as massage, angel therapy, and workshop space.
“The business keeps changing and evolving, and we are really looking forward to hosting a Youth Entrepreneurship Market on Thursday evenings throughout the summer,” said Owner, Amber Howard.
Lighten Up Therapy & Wellness has a great selection of gift ideas, and ongoing events and classes. As a whole, Lighten Up brings much needed natural choices and diversity, and the classes add variety to the community,” said Deputy Mayor, Tannis Henderson.
