Our mission is to empower our customers with knowledge and provide them with products to make a healthy lifestyle affordable. You have the opportunity to read articles written by our founder Michael Dworkin, PD, CCN, and his daughter, Erika, Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition®, our owner. The Manchester Parkade Health Shoppe has been a trusted resource in the community since 1956, first as Liggett-Rexall Pharmacy, and later as a full-service health food store. We’re excited to be taking the next step of offering our shopping experience online . . . coming soon!

Seeking answers and guidance to lead a healthier lifestyle?  Owner, Erika Dworkin (Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition® and Certified Lifestyle Educator), offers nutrition consultations both in-store and by appointment.

Not sure what a health shoppe is or how we differ from a drugstore? Wondering what we have? We could tell you we sell high-quality dietary supplements, healthy allergen-free foods, affordable organic produce, natural personal care products and much more, but we’d rather show you!

Natural Nutmeg Magazine
is Connecticut’s Resource for Essential Living

I am continually impressed with Erika’s level of commitment and passion for educating people on the importance of trustworthy, evidence-based information about nutrition and holistic health. She has written cutting-edge, information-packed articles for Natural Nutmeg for years and we consistently receive fantastic feedback on every single one.
