Hello and welcome to our very first blog! This is completely new territory to us so please bear that in mind! We decided that we want you to be part of our journey into the world of Organically U and share our ups and downs as we go along….however, in order to do that, we need to take you back 12 months or so……
Kylie and I met in 2017 whilst working for the same health store company – she was a Manager and myself a Supervisor. We hit it off straight away with our shared interests in eco-friendly ideals and health and wellness, not to mention our passion for helping people!
The company we worked for, although very, very successful worldwide, had what we felt were flaws in the system and we didn’t feel it was reaching the needs of the customer, or us as employees. This is where our big dreams and ideas began! (Bring on Sir Alan Sugar!!)Haha!!
We felt our local area was missing something unique, something that would give back to the community but also help protect our planet in the long run so we want to be the people who bring that.
So, in October 2018 I took the leap of faith and with the support of my partner I was able to leave my post….and in a strange twist of fate Kylie was offered redundancy shortly afterward. We couldn’t believe it, it was like this was the path we were meant to be on (plus we both believe in fate and things happening for a reason). So Kylie also took a giant leap of faith and together we formed Organically U.
On the 5th of January 2019, we launched our website -www.organicallyuonline.co.uk (Although in fairness this is still a work in progress) and we have sought out business support and advice from those in the know to ensure we are on the right path. In the next few months, we will be on Redcar high street and we are so, so, so excited about it, to the point where we can’t think of anything else!
The store will be a one-stop shop for all your free from and organic food, clean beauty, and cruelty-free make-up needs. We will also offer eco-friendly household products, a refill station plus so much more. We aim to be an information hub for all your nutritional and health needs and queries, no matter how big or small, and we will continue to educate ourselves further by attending nutritional courses to make sure you have the most up to date, factual information.
These next few months are going to be exciting, hectic, crazy, emotional and busy but we know you will love what we have to bring. Keep an eye on our Facebook page ‘Organically U’ and also this blog for our progress and news. We truly look forward to welcoming you to your Organically U Store very soon.
