More About Us




A bit of background--

I, Linda, grew up in the Bedford area as a mountain farm girl with the independence and self-sufficiency of my Scots-Irish ancestors, which led to a desire to take care of myself rather than leave that to others. That in turn led me to learning about alternative health choices. Ken, my husband, grew up in Huntsville, Alabama and is an ordained minister. He's now director of The Summit, a retirement community in the Lynchburg, VA area. He's also my partner in The Well just as he is my partner in life.

We began with a booth at a local festival in 1996, had fun, and did shows for quite a while. It grew into a huge task because our product line kept getting larger. Then for several years we did mail order only.
In March of 2002 we opened our first storefront in a tiny space on South Bridge Street in the historic small town of Bedford, Virginia. We moved into our second, more spacious accomodations in February of 2003, at 114 North Bridge Street; one block away.

In May of 2011 we relocated to our current store, a new construction on Independence Boulevard in Bedford. Our customers are ecstatic - SO much easier access now; and an actual parking lot! 
The store itself is like no other health food store you've ever visited - come by; relax to the sound of the waterfall in our nature scene complete with quite large trees (!) and music chosen for stress reduction. Take a breath - take your time - make yourself at home.

The Well just keeps on growing. The economic ills in America have not stopped us - we have incredibly loyal customers, who seem to 'get it' that we not only care about them, but also about how we serve them. We'll continue to do that to the very best of our ability, and invite YOU to be a part of The Well 'community'.
