A Lehigh Acres business that first opened its doors over 20 years ago is under new ownership.

Formerly known as The Healthy Gourmet, the store has reopened as Lehigh Organic Foods, at 1305 Homestead Road N., Suite 104. Recently purchased by a company called Blue Falcon, the store plans to offer the Lehigh community a wider variety of healthy products by expanding on its product lines.

Sales associate Christine Thurston explained that residents looking for organic and other health products have been forced to drive into Fort Myers.

Formerly The Healthy Gourmet, Lehigh Organic Foods has reopened at 1305 Homestead Road N., Suite 104, under new ownership and management.

"The residents of Lehigh Acres deserve to have a place to go locally and not have to drive an hour away to get what they need," she said. "If we don't currently have it in the store, we can order it."

Lehigh Organic Foods offers a selection of organic produce grown by local farmers.

The store carries organic produce like Oaks Farms, along with brands such as Rainbow Light, Carlson, Nature's Way Twinlab and Planet Source. There are also food samplings in-store for visitors to try.

"We want customers to be able to try our products and sample new items as they come into the store," Thurston said.

According to Thurston, the owners have plans to expand into a larger space in the future.

Other changes include additional refrigerator space to carry a larger variety of products and an overall expansion of its product and vitamin lines, along with an increase in the amount of skin care and pet care products carried.

Lehigh Organic Foods even has a customer appreciation program.

"We created a new discount card program," she said. "Now customers don't have to wait until they reach a certain spending goal to get money taken off their sale. The first weekend of each month - Friday, Saturday and Sunday - customers get 10 percent off their entire purchase."

Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
