About Us

null

Ruth Tracy opened Columbia Health Foods in 1982. She wanted to fill the need for a health food store in the community. She opened the store with the help of her daughter, Jackie, on the weekends. For the first few years she struggled to keep the store open but she just kept going! We are so glad she did! Ruth sold the store to her daughter Jackie Davis in 2012. In the fall of that year Jackie moved the store across the street to our current location. We have so much more room here to stretch our legs! We have enjoyed adding so many new products to the store.

We offer a broad spectrum of products. We carry supplements, essential oils, health and beauty aids, books, incense, organic produce, gluten free foods, bulk foods, snacks and much more.

We pride ourselves on quality brands and products. We love to work with local vendors and have several local products in the store.

We pride ourselves on great customer service. All of our employees are constantly learning by reading, attending classes, lectures, and conventions to further our education.

Our juice and smoothie bar is open daily and we use only organic fruits and vegetables.

Soup and salad are offered everyday as well. We also offer services which include: Biofeedback, Light Therapy and Foot Detox.

"Love this store! They are always so kind and helpful. Recently I asked about a product that I didn't see, just curious if it was something they carried. They took the time to really look into it and get it ordered for me. This is why shopping local matters."

“Very large selection of homeopathic remedies, vitamins, supplements, detox kits and fresh baked gluten free foods. Family owned and operated, knowledgeable staff. They do have limited hours. Please note they close by 3 pm on Saturday and are closed on Sunday. I was lucky enough to discover this place on First Friday when all the stores downtown in Columbia are open 5 to 8 pm on the first Friday of each month.”
