From the Ground Up moved to the Cranbrook downtown core earlier this year, and foot traffic has picked up. “People browse more,” said Leanna Spring, mother of Devon Rae, the other co-owner. Best sellers are the certified organic and the local produce. Shoppers are surprised by the diversity of products in the new store, including a large selection of metaphysical gemstones that are also strong sellers. “We’d like to get into high-end supplements and bulk personal care products like shampoo so it lessens the carbon footprint,” said Spring. Visit the mother-daughter team at 16 - 13th Avenue South near Safeway.
