I am writing to all of you to give you an update of what is going on at Betty Lou’s Health Foods here in Duluth.
We continue to be open for business at this time with regular hours: 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday Always closed on Sundays.
We have been doing our best to keep our shelves stocked with all of your favorite items. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, vitamin C is of short supply. I have tried to order different varieties of vitamin C, but some of my suppliers’ warehouses are completely empty. I have ordered in more elderberry gummies and syrup than I usually stock, but large bottles of elderberry syrup were out the last time I ordered. I have quite a bit of Sovereign Silver on our shelf, but the largest sizes are sold out.
I am sold out of Aloe Vera gel and glycerin. Tea tree oil has run low. I am out of “Thieves” copy cats currently. My vendors are out as well. Keep checking as things may change.
Quite a few people have asked me if I am closing. The governor of Minnesota and the mayor of Duluth have not ordered me to close, yet. I never have more than 10 people in our store at the same time. Today, I decided the most difficult scenario for Betty Lou’s would be to close, so you, my loyal customer would not be able to purchase the supplements you rely on to stay healthy. The health food industry in the United States has encouraged us to remain open for you as long as possible. We have been washing our hands frequently, not hugging or shaking hands, using hand sanitizer and we do not come into the store with any symptoms of this virus.
I told quite a few customers today, if I have to run your orders out to your cars I will. I will take over the phone orders, text orders and email orders if needed! I continue to mail out orders to people as well. In this time of isolation and crisis, I will deliver or mail orders in the Duluth~Superior area for minimal shipping fees.
I appreciate your almost 25 years of loyalty and friendship. I am very thankful for all of you.
May you all remain healthy and happy,
Betty Lou Marsaa , CEO Betty Lou’s Health Foods, Inc. 2210 Mountain Shadow Drive Duluth, MN 55811 218-722-1885
