New regulations force retailers to raise prices on natural health products. In this Spring 2019 commentary (3 minute read) by Health & Wellness Retailer, “How the Self Care Framework Will Impact Retailers and Consumers,” Shawn Buckley paints a picture of how Health Canada’s proposed new legislation threatens the wellness industry at the community level. The new regulations will dictate the products retailers can carry, the way they can talk about them, and the amount they will have to charge for them. Without the guidance of a practitioner guiding them toward useful, available and affordable natural remedies, customers will be pushed out of focus. Retailers, use your presence as a community hub to educate about the changes. Demand action from those who rely on access to the products in your store.
