There are jobs, and then there are careers—and if you’re lucky, your career is also your passion. For these The Vitamin Shoppe Health Enthusiasts, that is certainly the case. Here, Marvin Barton (a Health Enthusiast for 18 years), Lily Hariprasad (a Health Enthusiast for 22 years), and Melvin Summerville (a Health Enthusiast for 27 years), share their career journeys and reflect on how much The Vitamin Shoppe has changed since they started. In fact, Melvin recalls when the company only had nine stores total!
Today, 40 years since opening its first location, The Vitamin Shoppe boasts nearly 800 locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Imagine being part of that sort of evolution?
