To our valued customers,
We are seeing a lot of new faces at our store, alongside those who are long time and loyal Nu Leaf Customers. We appreciate all of you choosing to shop local with us at Nu leaf.
Please head to our COVID-19 Updates page to read about changes to store hours, new policies and procedures to keep you and us safe and healthy, and other changes at this time.
In order for us to continue to serve you and our community, please consider whether you have any of the follow symptoms or considerations before entering our store.
Do you have any symptoms of illness, especially fever, cough, difficulty breathing or pneumonia?
Have you or anyone in your household recently travelled internationally within the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with or is being tested for COVID-19 (coronavirus)?
Thank you for considering the health of our store staff and other customers.
Update: March 21 2020
We are again updating our store hours to fit better with the demand we are seeing from customers. Morning is our more popular shopping time. In an effort to better manage the volume of customers in the store, and do our part in responsible social distancing, we are going to be opening an hour early at 7:00 am, daily.
Our store hours will now be 7:00 am – 8:00 pm daily.
We are still asking our customers to allow the first hour of the store opening to be for those who are higher risk including, the elderly, and those with immunity issues.
Currently, we are experiencing higher customer volumes from 10 am – 2 pm daily. Our quietest store hours are in the evenings.
Moving forward we are considering many different ways we can protect the health, safety and comfort of our store staff and our customers. During higher volume shopping hours, we may begin to limit the number of customers allowed in the store at one time. We will be monitoring the store closely over the weekend and implementing capacity measures as needed, based on what we are observing.
We are also strongly encouraging customers to use debit or credit, instead of cash and change. This is one simple change that will help us keep our store staff comfortable and healthy, which allows us to continue to serve our customers.
There are more changes we are considering, and are going to be working on implementing throughout the weekend. We will keep you posted with updates on any changes.
We appreciate your consideration and understanding of these changes. We want everyone in our community to be comfortable and healthy. 🙂

Update: What’s New at Nu Leaf for 2020
Happy New Year to our valued Nu Leaf Customers!
Thank you for your continued support since Nu Leaf opened 8 years ago. We’ve learned a lot since we first opened, embracing the challenges and opportunities that arise from the continuously evolving food & agriculture industry, and we have some exciting plans for this new year that I want to share with you.
Since the day we opened our doors our goal has always been, and will continue to be, sourcing items that are as local as possible, and to support local farmers in our area. We source from over 40+ local & BC farmers to bring you the best! My passion for supporting local farmers comes from my own family’s history of farming in the Kamloops area for over 30 years.
At Nu Leaf you can shop with comfort knowing where your food comes from and with the assurance that it was sourced with care. I have always been committed to providing our customers with responsibly grown produce, like we grow on our family farms. Knowing where your produce comes from, what particular farm, and how it is grown, is extremely important to me and will continue to be top of mind in our purchasing department.
What’s New For 2020?
We will be working closer with our import suppliers, and our local farmers, to bring you more organic items. Our focus will continue to be local, and we want to maintain our commitment to relationships with local farmers. We will build on those relationships by providing local farmers with the opportunity to grow and sell organically farmed produce to our customers.
This year we are working to reduce, and hopefully one day eliminate, single use plastics by sourcing and providing more sustainable solutions. Our first step in this journey was the launch of Nu Bags Sustainable Solutions, my newest company, which offers zero-waste, sustainable solutions to retailers and consumers. I have been researching and considering how to reduce single use plastic’s at Nu Leaf for a while now, and we’re ready to tackle the hard work behind the scenes to make it happen.
We will be undergoing renovations to revamp our space and create a better shopping experience for our customers. We can’t wait to show off our many local products in a refreshed space. (No closure dates are anticipated at this time regarding our renovation plans.) We know a lot of our customers come to our store from across the city and other communities, and we know many of you are interested in a second Nu Leaf location. We are always mindful of potential opportunities, should we find the perfect space.
We are very excited for all the year ahead and can’t wait to share these exciting changes with all of you!
– Herman Hothi, Owner
