Kate Wunderlin, managing partner of Natural Health Center, said the relationship with Treystar is more than just a business transaction.
“It has been a good relationship for us,” she said. “We feel that they are fair and invested in us and their other tenants.”
Kate’s father, Mike Wunderlin, is a founding partner of Natural Health Center.
Treystar is Available
“We have found that Treystar is always available for us,” Mike said.
Kate agreed, saying, “Treystar does a great job of keeping us informed about what is going on. If we have questions or concerns, they are always available to listen. The ability to call or email and have a quick response time has been very helpful as well.”
Working with Treystar has allowed the store to focus their attention on their customers and products rather than the grounds and maintenance outside, Kate said.
“Treystar does a great job keeping the outside looking great,” she said, “specifically snow removal and parking lot maintenance just to name a few.”
“It’s always about feeling better,” Mike said, “including the people you work with. Treystar makes it easy because they take care of the people they work with.”
Natural light is coveted at Natural Health Center and their facility is specially designed to allow as much ambient light in as possible.
“Our beautiful front windows let in a lot of light and allow people to see into our store at any time,” Kate said.
“Our Cira-Lights skylights are also a special feature,” she said. We have 16 skylights throughout the store that let in natural sunlight. They have worked out great. The skylights allow us to have a naturally bright store while lowering our carbon footprint. We save the equivalent of 8,000 gallons of gasoline or taking 16 cars off the road each year.”
“Natural light is better,” Mike said. “We have trees and plants and everything just grows just normal inside the store. It’s better for the people who work here and the people who shop here.”
Natural Health Center is happy to recommend Treystar to others based on their positive working relationship and recent improvements to Westwood Plaza.
“We have been really happy with the direction that Treystar has taken in the past few years,” Kate said. “They are great people to work with. We would recommend them to any company looking for space in the area.”
Mike said, “Treystar has been a very good partner to us.”
Natural Health Center’s Economic Impact
“As a locally owned business, we are members of Buy Local Greater Kalamazoo,” Kate said. “We feel like it is so important to support local businesses in our community.
“Each dollar you spend at a local independent business returns three times more money to our local economy than one spent at a chain/big box store. The benefits of supporting local are huge. For more information visit, www.buylocalkalamazoo.org.
“On a store level, our focus is to help make our customers feel better. Our ‘Featured Speakers’ program provides monthly lectures on a variety of health and wellness topics,” Kate said. “A healthier community is a happier and more successful community.”
