The next big West Seattle retail trend?

We’ve had a cascade of cupcakes, a plethora of pet stores … now, perhaps, a surge of supplement shops. A year after Super Supplements moved into The Junction, a new permit granted for space in Westwood Village (we haven’t done the backwork yet to figure out which space “E8” refers to) reveals the impending arrival of “Fresh Vitamins.” A quick websearch shows they have several other outlets around the metro area.

    I believe E8 is the one under Rain on the corner across from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The for lease sign is gone and I have seen some contruction activity.

    Barnes & Noble is E1, and State Farm (near Bed Bath & Beyond) is E22, so it’s probably in that strip between the two. Last time I was there I seemed to recall vacant shops there. Shops on the other side of that lot (Eats Market, Radio Shack) begin with B.

    Does anyone actually shop at Super Supplements? You can get vitmins even cheaper online and avoid promoting the business of such an ugly chain storefront (gaudy neon) in such a prime junction location. I was hoping the place wouldn’t make it.

    That location (Super Supplements) would make such a good spot for an all-night diner.

    Super Supplements – nice people, ugly storefront, hideous radio commercials. They have a good selection, but the prices didn’t impress me.

    I do shop at Super Supplements out of convenience. It’s not necessarily the cheapest, but I’m passing by, and saves me driving anywhere. When I was in NJ I loved Vitamin Shoppe (which is now near Southcenter). I loved their cash-back for what you bought in a year, and they had a lot of good prices and sales. I just don’t get up there often.

    Does anyone know if they sell Androstenedione or Human Growth Hormones?

    It’s odd the retail in West Seattle is so out of touch with the sentiments of the commenters here.

    I don’t shop at Super Supplements. But I know that by wishing that space would be host to a different business, it’ll probably become a Quiznos.

    House…looking to bulk up a little? ;-)

    I don’t get the idea of expensive vitamins. Either they dissolve in your tummy or they don’t. Beyond that, it’s a vitamin, for heaven’s sake.

Sorry, comment time is over.
