Access to Health Chiropractic Center & Ideal Weight Loss Clinic

Posted on March 24, 2017 at 2:46 PM by Deb Hinchey

Access to Health Chiropractic Center

When tragedy hits, courageous people move forward.  Many will remember the fire in January at 598 West Main Street.  The building was destroyed but not the backbone of the businesses that called that locale their home. 

The “Team” recently visited Dr. Michael Allard and his Chiropractic Center called Access to Health.  They have temporarily relocated to 47 Lafayette Street.  He is continuing his chiropractic services and care including naturopathic services.  He is the owner of the building on West Main Street and is eagerly looking forward to rebuilding.  His professionalism and strength is evident. 


Ideal Weight Loss Clinic

We also visited Tricia Allard.  She is the owner of the Ideal Weight Loss Clinic.  She is continuing her excellent weight loss and health business in her temporary location, also at 47 Lafayette Street.  

“Our weight loss program has been evolving for over 20 years. Our medically developed weight loss protocol and smarter lifestyle choices education offers dieters what they really want…a structured program that can put an end to constant dieting. Your personal weight loss coach will empower you with the knowledge you’ll need to develop better living habits and smarter eating choices after the program ends.”

Poppy & Rye Bakery Café

Posted on March 20, 2017 at 4:33 PM by Deb Hinchey

“Our bakers do their very best to keep our shelves filled with something for everyone. They're always here early in the morning working hard so that you can treat yourself before the day starts. And they'll be right here in the afternoon ready to help you wind down after a long day.”

The “Team” took a ride to 137 Norwich Avenue in Taftville.  We met with Bob Adams who talked about his offerings of all sorts of yummy breads, bagels, cupcakes, cookies and cakes!  He also serves up freshly roasted local coffee, sandwiches and salads made to order and some of the best teas in the area.  He is well known for his breads and reports that 75% of his business comes from out of town.  Folks will drive a distance to eat his breads that are baked daily according to the schedule.  He has 10 employees and if you have ever stopped in, you know first-hand how customer focused they are. 

Groups meet in the sunny dining area, nothing better than good food and good company.  The problems of the world can be solved much easier with a tasty treat in front of you.  Come on Norwich, we can beat those out of towners, get your bread and goodies at our own home town bakery.

Do you want to visit a small shop with a big heart?  Go then, to visit Jeff Blayman at Ideal Skate Shop, at 175 Central Avenue in the beautiful village of Greenville.  Jeff provides all manner of skateboarding product and accessories to a huge audience including an online store.  His artwork can be found all across the country in 80 different shops.  The artwork is critical to his success and Jeff works with a new artist every four months.  He offers clothes, coffee, tea and some really “cool” shoes.  Jeff also supports the entire community and volunteers with a myriad of groups.  The “Team” enjoyed our visit and highly recommends a trip to this unique business.
