Ounce of Prevention closing doors

Jan Muir is closing the doors of the local health store in Princeton.

Time for change Although Jan Muir is closing up shop this month

After seven years of owning and operating and approximately 10 years working for the previous owners, Jan Muir is closing the doors of the local health store, Ounce of Prevention.

She does this with a heavy heart… “This is so hard,” she says, “I’m going to miss everyone like crazy…I’ve met so many great people.”

The costs of doing business are outweighing making ends meet. Muir explains that government costs such as the GST, PST and HST as well as happenings like rental increases make it,  “hard to sustain any small business.”

She also mentions that she and other small business owners were hopeful that the opening of the mine would create “a boom to the community,” — it has just not happened.

For the next two weeks, all Ounce of Prevention stock will be discounted by 25 percent. Depending on how long stock lasts, the store will operate at regular hours  – 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. No new product will be ordered.

For those concerned with how to continue with their healthy shopping regimens, Muir suggests that customers seek the advice of the local pharmacists.

Recently married to the man of her dreams,  Muir says she is not leaving Princeton—this is home.

“I’m going to take a few courses,” she says, “I love to learn, I love to help and I love to give.”

Those who have the pleasure of knowing this wonderful lady, know this statement to be true—100 percent.

Muir wants to extend her thanks to the people of Princeton, “Thanks for all your goodwill, I could not have done this without you!”

“Stay happy and healthy—luv ya!”
