Uptown Nutrition has been evolving since 1976, when it began as the Victorian Grocer. The store has ‘lived’ on Water Street, Tyler street and then moved up the hill to the Uptown business district with a new name, Natural’s Health and Beauty. In 2005 Suzy Carroll purchased the business and once again change was in the air. She renamed the store Uptown Nutrition and began her quest to develop the store into a hub of education.
Our employees all hold certifications in different health modalities attend regular educational trainings so they can help you find the best vitamins, minerals, herbs, protein supplements, homeopathic products, mineral cosmetics and skin and facial care for your unique needs. Whether you are looking for capsules, tablets, liquids, gels, powders or tinctures or a good healthy snack, we either have it in stock or we’ll get it for you!
Six years later, Uptown Nutrition has evolved into the community’s wellness center, known for customer service, education and quality products. We are Your Wellness Store!

Jani Weller, RN

She is a fantastic addition to our staff, blending the good in both worlds – allopathic and holistic! In her free time you can find Jani volunteering for Gathering Place, dancing her heart out at NIA or riding her Harley!
Jobeth Capps, Aesthetician
Jobeth’s training as an aesthetician makes her our skincare expert. She owned her own clinic years ago, formulating skin products specifically for each customers needs. She knows skincare inside and out! Jobeth is also a cancer survivor and needless to say, is very passionate about health. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her two dogs and taking long walks.
Brad, along with his job coach, keeps our store tidy and clean. He comes to us through Skookum. A program dedicated to finding employment for those with disabilities. He has been keeping Uptown Nutrition dust free for over three years! Brad requires a calm environment to work in. It makes us very happy that Brad, who is a highly sensitive individual, has become a part of who we are. We really miss him and all that he does for us when he takes time away.
Last, but certainly not least…
Tom Carroll, co-owner and Suzy’s husband. Although Tom isn’t directly involved in the store, he provides support in many ways such as helping with maintenance jobs (he’s our light bulb man) to patiently putting up with having his face used to test products on. Tom’s ‘real’ job is Vice President of another local company, Pacific Environmental Services. If you ask him about supplements you will most likely get a blank look but ask him about building gas stations or environmental clean ups and you will get an ear full!
