September 17, 2008
Jackson, Mich. — Shoppers in downtown Jackson will soon enjoy a new retail store providing health and beauty products with the grand opening of the Allegiance Wellness Marketplace on Monday, September 29. Located on the first floor of One Jackson Square, the store will be open Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
"The Allegiance Wellness Marketplace will enhance the Jackson shopping experience with many items not found anywhere else downtown," said Tom Spoelstra, director of Retail Services at Allegiance Health. These items will include inspiring cards and gifts, soothing music, aromatherapy products and healthy cosmetics, along with practical items like aspirin and cold medications. The Marketplace will also feature magazines, music and dvds and personal accessories including handbags and jewelry.
According to Spoelstra, the Allegiance Wellness Marketplace supports a national trend of consumer demand for products that support nutrition, skin care and exercise.
"As consumers take more responsibility for their own health and are becoming more knowledgeable about their wellness choices, they are expecting more than just medical services from their healthcare providers," Spoelstra said. "We are pleased to be able to supply that need in a store that is a natural extension of our mission to leading our community to better health."
