Nelson business matters
Loveday Clinic slow down
Loveday Clinic founder John Loveday and wife Helen have decided to take time out and allow associates to step up.
Chiropractor Adam Mokhtar and naturopath Noreen Macdonald will be taking on more hours for the couple.
“We have a unique team that specialises in all things natural and we want to continue John and Helen’s legacy,” Mokhtar said.
Macdonald said she was excited to become more integrated in the team after starting at the clinic six months ago.
Masseuse Scott Sharpe said he had “been blessed” to work with John and Helen but looked forward to Adam taking the reins.
Exporting Nelson lemonade
Nelson company Pete’s Natural Lemonade has expanded to export their first shipment overseas.
Owners Pete and Marleen Blommaert are excited to now be trading in Singapore and Malaysia.
“Our goal for the next 12 months is to break into other export markets. Hong Kong and Australia are also on the cards,” Marleen said.
Recently the business moved into a new factory where they now bottle their own drinks.
“Now we have our production secured, we can put all our efforts into continuing to grow,” she said.
Chamber hosts Labour MPs
MPs Jacinda Adern, Su’a William Sio, Peenie Henare, Stuart Nash and Louisa Wall are going to be in Nelson next week for an economic development discussion.
The event is at Cafe Affair on Tuesday August 30 and will be informal. Registration and more information can be found on the chamber website.
Stirling sports expanded
Since Hogeys Surf moved back onto Hardy St, Stirling Sports has taken over the space.
Owner Dave Heyward said the bigger store had been well received.
