Who We Are:
Goodness Me! natural food market is a chain of family owned, Canadian, local natural health food stores with a mission to help people live longer and healthier lives. They offer a unique array of natural and organic groceries, supplements, a full prepared foods section (with salads, soups, wraps, hot meals, smoothies, and baked goods), a fully equipped classroom to run a variety of educational and fun courses and classes, and a friendly team of knowledgeable and approachable staff.
Goodness Me! was founded 34 years ago in 1981 by Janet and Scott Jacks. Scott had lost his father to diabetes around the same time that he was diagnosed with the disease himself. Eager to help her husband avoid the same fate as his father, and wanting to prevent their children from developing diabetes, Janet began doing research on how to treat and prevent diabetes. All her research led her to nutrition as the key to health: food as a way to heal rather than harm. Goodness Me! opened its doors in Hamilton in 1981 and became a spot where Janet, her family, and the Hamilton community could find the foods, supplements, and information needed to create a healthier lives filled with vitality and wellness.
Today, Goodness Me! has 9 locations across southern Ontario. Janet and Scott enjoy greater health than ever, as do their 5 children and 12 grandchildren. Janet Jacks also released her first book titled Discover the Power of Food in January 2014, and it has since become a Canadian best-seller. She has her own radio program every Saturday morning on AM900CHML from 8am-9am, and it can be streamed live online at goodnessme.ca.
