Once Upon A Time……
When John & Cherrie purchased N° 7 St. John Street in 1986, their aim was to offer excellent customer service and sell high quality products at a good price. With hard work and determination, they succeeded in their mission and created two wonderful shops, (N° 7 Wholefoods & N° 16 Natural Remedies) opposite one an other, on St. John Street, Perth.
Their son, Darren, started working alongside his parents in 1998 which many years later allowed John & Cherrie to retire, leaving the business and it’s bright future in Darren’s hand.
Our mission is to maintain & grow the business in an ethical and sustainable manner, to reduce our carbon emissions where possible and to ensure that our suppliers have similar views to our own.
We aim to support the local community when possible and to be a fair employer at all times.
