Unfortunately, I haven't really had any luck with this store. Many questions go unanswered, and many times I've been told I've been wrong about something, when in fact I've researched it fully (usually cancer-related things such as what shouldn't be consumed, foods that trigger estrogen increase, etc.). This concerns me as many books, websites, naturopathic doctors, etc will advise me one way, and the clerks at Roots seem to have another opinion (and try to sell me something). Many of the clerks are very nice, but a few can be downright rude. And I wish they would leave their produce alone - do not take the leaves/stems off of the beets (I cook them on for added nutrients),etc. Their produce is usually reasonably priced, their dry goods are average in price, but their skin care products, hair products, etc are ridiculously priced - I can get them at a much better price elsewhere, so do just that, along with my other groceries now. Their hours need to be adjusted to that of their competitors as well - when I commented that it's unfortunate they close so early, I was told that "well, then you'll come on a weekend if it's important enough for you". Great customer service on that one! Unfortunately, not impressed.
