Archie Browns takes store experience online

Cornish health store Archie Browns has launched a new retail website offering healthy foods, vitamins, supplements, natural beauty products and eco-friendly cleaning products.

The shop, which has two branches – one in Truro and one in Penzance – says the e-commerce venture offers the same friendly and helpful advice they provide in store by offering individuals support via email and on the website (

The company says that the Archie Browns’ ethos is to provide people with the choice of a healthy lifestyle and support them to look after their own health by providing a friendly and helpful service within an inspiring and uplifting environment.

The store’s general manager, Claire Humphreys, who is also heading up the e-commerce venture commented on the launch: “We have been ruminating about developing an online shop for quite some time now and we really wanted to do a great job for our customer by replicating as closely as possible the in-store experience online. We had the passion but not the know-how. Then after attending the Natural & Organic Products Europe earlier this year we encountered the perfect set of ‘techy-bods’ who have been able to help us realize this vision. We are absolutely delighted to now have what we believe to be an online ‘archie browns experience’.”
