Map & Details>>

Those Vitamin Cottage Natural Food Market commercials have made the children of company founders Margaret and Phillip Isely into local celebrities. But TV viewers may not be as familiar with the family-owned food store's historic home in Lakewood. While not officially recognized by the Lakewood Historical Society, a large sign announces the significance of this clapboard cottage: It's where Margaret realized that selling vitamin supplements could make for a successful enterprise, and renamed her existing bulk-food business Vitamin Cottage. Today there are 33 stores keeping Colorado healthy.
My Voice Nation Help

I am boycotting Vitamin Cottage (along with four other friends) until they take off the cheap, self-promoting, Rocky inspired commercials. Can we really trust their judgment to provide quality merchandise if they have such poor judgment in their commercials?
