“Nothing’s Easy & Nothing’s Hard… You Just Gotta Do It!”
For our independent family business, currently celebrating twenty years shared in good health, these iconic words, recollected by Nature’s President Joe D’Addario at their 20th Anniversary Event, have become a warm touchstone to the roots of success.
Yet, for Nature’s, that success has been defined not just by outward growth, but even more so by the incredible expansion of a family within.
That family, including hundreds of dedicated employees, friends and product partners, was out in full force for serious celebration despite the season’s first major snowfall. Indeed, the celebration was warranted.
Several team members were honoured for their exemplary service – marking 5, 10 and even 15 year milestones that reach back to the very foundations of our history.
As Angelo D’Addario, third generation employee and manager of Nature’s forthcoming Vaughan location emphasized that evening, the value of family tradition reaches deep into the roots of Nature’s culture.
“It has taught us the value of hard work, family and pride. We’ve spent our entire lives watching the responsibility of the store be passed on from our grandfather to our parents, Aunt and Uncle and now to be a part of the process that we hope will take Nature’s Emporium even further, we’re filled with a sense of pride and excitement.”
It’s an excitement shared by the many families working side-by-side within Nature’s Emporium.
“In book after book, I’ve read that hiring people who are related to each other is a mistake. We’ve never believed that. We’ve always taken the counter intuitive approach, and embraced it.” Joe remarked proudly.
“Nature’s Emporium is not just a family run business – it’s a business run by families.”
And, by years end, those families will enter another chapter in a journey of health first begun by Nature’s founder Angelo D’Addario, as doors open to our first new location in Vaughan. No doubt, their unity – and your continued partnership with us – will play a crucial role throughout another 20 years of adventure in wellness!
