This store is wonderful! Occasionally they're really busy, but if you ask questions, the staff is quick to respond no matter what they're doing. Lynn M. (who wrote a negative comment down the list of tips) is SO wrong in her pricing. We have more than one Natural Foods store in the area, and Dover Natural is FAR FROM the priciest!! In fact, they're much cheaper than one of the LARGER health food stores in Dover. And just so ya know.....if I saw someone who kept putting their hands in their pockets while looking over their shoulder, I would ALSO think you might be stealing! C'mon....who does that?? Anyway, check this place out! The smell alone will make you want to come back!!!
wonderful and inviting – I actually live in Vt. and come to Dover frequently and
try to time my visits for a green smoothie and the new book selection for the book club.
I love talking with the staff they are always helpful and I have even called from Vt. and ordered products and had them shipped to me. I feel the staff goes out of their
way to help or answer questions and I always compare
them to what we have available in our area and they always win hands down .I truly enjoy the store and will continue to support them when I come to town.
Avoid This Place!! – This is the most overpriced health food store around, with exception to the cafe. Also, don't be caught sticking your hands in your pockets in the place........I was accused of stealing twice!! They "got me on camera," and, "saw me looking over my shoulder," and, "saw me sticking my hand in my pocket!" Excuse me for living! I don't shop here anymore since I am treated like a criminal.
A great place to shop! – I stop in at Dover Natural whenever I am in town. The selection is truly amazing. Organic produce, a whole gluten free isle, bulk herbs and supplements.
I love the cafe the best, the soups are wonderful and the smoothies are to die for. I always spend time talking to the cooks, they are a great group of individuals.
All the employees are friendly and know their products.
I only wish there was a store in my own area that could compare. So when I get the chance I always shop there!
Thanks, Dover Natural for providing such a wonderful experience!
Best Food Great Store! – Dover Natural is one of the best natural food stores around! and it includes a tasty unique deli! I'm a behavioral therapist for children with Autism. The children i work with often experience needing specific and altered diets to accommodate different gastro-intestinal problems. These many different accommodations can be found in the wonderful gluten-free products they have to offer.
Not only are the products fresh, organic, and delicious, they are well priced for today's economy. Their service has been nothing but amazing the hundreds of times I've gone in there. Everyone is always so happy to help you!
The deli is out of this world with home made and unique sandwiches and soups! I love going there on my lunch break or right after work on my way home. Always so tasty, always such good service too!
Very hospitable, friendly and knowledgeable – @SDLKJLKL I find it interesting that you try to portray yourself as this reasonable, polite, intellectual as you use ad hominems to stress your point and pat yourself on the back. I fail to see why it's paramount for anyone to know or care that you are a vegetarian or what your IQ is or your profession. The only reason I can see you even stating this is to try to illustrate you are somehow superior to the person who was concerned about your dog? Your post was amusingly ignorant as I sat here reading it. You seem to think you are above some "help" showing concern over the well being of your dog and you don't need to be lectured by someone so beneath you. You really don't realize just how truly ignorant you come off and how your rating on the store means very little when your attitude comes off as a condescending child with a superiority complex.
I've been to Dover Natural many times and have had nothing but a great experience there. They are extremely friendly and helpful. The atmosphere there is that of friends not rush-you-out-the-door business. The help there has gone out of their way to get me the answers I have asked if they didn't already know it. I would highly recommend Dover Natural for a friendly experience at a small local business.
Your post is riddled with condescension and it reeks of a immaturity. I'm sorry someone hurt your feelings because they had concern for your pet and if it elevated to the point of them wanting to call the cops I don't think you were being as rational and polite as you seem to be trying to project yourself as.
I'm sorry but I'm still laughing at the fact you actually had to put your IQ on your post. I find that hysterically funny. You have no logical skills to express a point when you need to insult people and try to put yourself on a pedestal. Nothing can even be taken seriously when you do this. I'm glad you are moving on to another store to be honest. One less pompous pseudo intellectual looking down at everyone else and taking up space.
Always an enjoyable experience – I am a little bit shy. That being said, I was introduced to Dover Natural by a friend and as soon as I walked in I knew this was a place I was going to visit again...and soon! The atmosphere just exudes positive energy and I felt comfortable immediately with the pleasant demeanor and willingness to help displayed by all of the employees.
Not only are the people wonderful, but the food in the cafe is delicious (the juice, too!), and the prices are pretty reasonable. Plus, you can't get a lot of what they offer at a larger grocery store (trust me, I've looked!).
This is a great place. I recommend it to everyone that I think might even have an inkling to visit a health food store, and try to convince those who are inklingless to try it out :-)
So what are you waiting for?? Check it out!!
TEAM DOVER NATURAL!!
The review from the rude customer – Are you kidding me, dude!!! Did your brain get fried last week when the heat was over 100 degrees!! And you left your dog in the car?!! GOOD FOR DOVER NATURAL FOODS!! That employee SHOULD have called the cops on you!! P.s. people who really have a 130 IQ don
Why shop at Dover Natural if you want to kill dogs? – Dover Natural is a great place if you want to eat well and tread a little lightly on the planet. If you want to pursue a cruelty- free life, even better.
So the dude below (the one with a 130 IQ who misspells "know-nothing" "no-nothing") who wants to leave his dog in the car in the middle of a 100 degree heat wave even for just a minute? You're an evil douche and I'm glad that Dover Natural clerk told you off. Remind me to tip them the next time I'm in. I hope you don't come back to the store because I shop there to avoid people like you.
I stop in to DN several times a week. It's a family operation and everyone there is as sweet as can be provided you don't like to kill dogs by leaving them in your car in a heat wave. I'm frankly okay with it if the Dover Natural people are mean to dog-killers. I think there should be a line in the sand: No shirt, no shoes, no service. And no dog killers.
The prices at DN are very fair -- often cheaper than they are at my own local healthfood store (Earthwards in Amherst) and cheaper than ordering online. Their pumpkin muffins and vegan chocolate chip cookies are to die for.
I'm Team Dover Natural, and if you don't like dog killers, I hope you are too!
IN DEFENSE OF A GREAT STORE – To Mr. Rude:
You sound like a jerk! As a former business owner, I want to know why you didn't go to the owner rather than slam the whole business and everyone in it? It is people with low integrity that send anonymous on-line hate letters rather than confront an issue to the appropriate person! I've actually shopped at that store several times and always had a possitive experience!
