Welcome to Sunrise Organics
tel: 01202 553155
We are Bournemouth's premier vegan health food store! We are open Monday to Saturday, from 10am until 6pm each day.
We specialise in high quality organic whole foods and 'super foods' as well as stocking organic vitamins and supplements, body care, baby care, household cleaning products, essential oils, books, salt lamps, crystals and more!
We have freshly baked gluten free bread available every Thursday, freshly baked organic sourdough bread available every Friday as well as fresh, locally grown (wherever possible), organic fruit and veg.
And not only that, due to our recent and hugely exciting collaboration with Sweet Greens - The Organic Kitchen (formerly of Charminster) we now host regular 'raw food classes with Heidi' at the shop!
You will find us at 9 St Michael's Road (map below) which is located in the vibrant Triangle are of Bournemouth, just up from Marks & Sparks and about a two-minute walk further up the hill on the left from Holland & Barrett. Look out for the betting shops Ladbrokes and Betfred on either corner (yes really!) and you've found St Michael's Road. Make your way up the hill (sorry!) and we are the 4th shop on the left.
We are very lucky at Sunrise Organics that we just happen to be located on one of the only roads left in Bournemouth town centre that still offers FREE PARKING! Yep, I kid you not. For one whole hour you can park right outside Sunrise Organics in St Michael's Road totally for free - happy days! And, if for any reason you don't happen to find a space at the time you wish to visit us, fear not. There is a public car park, albeit a paying one (sigh!) literally a 30 second walk away from us in West Hill Road, namely West Hill Car Park. (Map below) Here you can park for 2 hours for £2.00. Postcode for Sat Nav - BH2 5PG (Click HERE for further parking info for this car park)
Every so often we put on tasting events and occasionally may even send out a 'newsletter' too. If you'd like to go on our mailing list please fill out the contact form below or alternatively you can simply use it to send us a message, an enquiry or whatever! We don't mind what. We just like to hear from folks!
Due to all that is involved with running a business our website sadly doesn't get updated as often as we'd like so the best way to keep up to date with all the Sunrise shenanigans is via our Facebook page. So why not drop by, 'like' our page, tick the 'get notifications' box and come join our ever-growing and super friendly Sunrise community!
And if you're wanting to know a little more about the peeps behind Sunrise, here's a bit about us...
So who are we? Well, on the left you'll see Mark Lewis and on the right you'll see me, Liz Josey, (acting the fools as usual. You can't beat a bit of 'Carry On' humour we say!) and on Saturday 1st August 2015 we opened Bournemouth's very first 100% vegan health store. We are both comitted vegans and love nothing more than introducing folks to the health benefits of plant-based living. We can't believe we've celebrated our second birthday aleady! It seems like only yesterday that we were excitedly getting the place ready for opening. Soooooo much has happened in that time! Least of all us having taken on TWO much needed assistants this summer. Mark's beautiful daughter Peppa now works alongside us 5 days a week and the lovely Stella (a local ex nurse and current acupuncturist) works with us on Mondays - HURRAH!
Even though it has been 2 years since we opened, our 'mission' is still the same at Sunrise and that is to make living and eating 'clean' and cruelty-free as easy and as affordable as possible by keeping our prices down but without any compromise on quality. (People are often surprised and comment on how very reasonably priced we are!) We have (still) got some BIG plans for the future of Sunrise where we hope to make things not only easy and affordable but as environmentally friendly and with as little packaging as possible. However, as anyone who runs their own business will know, all these things take time and are ultimately dependent on cashflow... !
As our aim is to be of serivce to the local commmunity we welcome ideas and feedback on how we can make things better. We are also more than happy to take customer requests for anything we don't currently hold in stock as well as offer a discounted bulk buying service where available. As long as it's vegan and organic (or at the very least natural and non-GMO) then we will do our utmost to oblige.
We like to think we're a fun and friendly couple and pride ourselves on our commitment to personal service, creating a welcoming and relaxed shopping environment for our customers as well as being willing to 'go the extra mile'. And with that said, we very much look forward to meeting and serving you soon.
Until we meet at Sunrise... be healthy, be happy!
Liz and Mark x
