2018 marks 20 years of owning and operating Cambridge Health 2000 for Linda Cairns – and she still loves everything about it.
“My favourite part of the store is still serving customers and helping them find the right products for them,” she said.
Originally a Christchurch girl, Linda, her husband and two boys made the move to the Waikato in the early 90s.
“In 1996 I lost both of my parents quite suddenly,” she said. “I used some of the inheritance to start Health 2000 Cambridge.”
In 2001, Linda’s husband – a quality surveyor in the Waikato – too passed away.
“But I’m sure both my parents and my husband would be proud of what I’ve achieved with the store,” she said. “And I now have six gorgeous grandchildren livening in Wellington and Hamilton.”
Also in the store are Peta (naturopath and herbalist), Lindz (store manager, medical herbalist and midwife), Delwyn (homeopathy consultant) and Krestie (massage therapy and complimentary therapy).
“We have a great team here,” Linda said. “Here’s to another 20 years!”
