Ken and Elaine Young founded Ken’s Herbs in 1994 to help the people of Union County feel their best. Ken passed away in 2011, and his wife, Elaine, carried on the business with the help of family and friends.
This July, Elaine decided it was time to retired and sold out to S&S Smoothies and Supplements on Merchants Walk in downtown Blairsville.
Elizabeth Dyer, owner of S&S, has been in the industry for over ten years and said, “Ken is one of the reasons I began learning about natural health. He helped me find the supplements I needed to feel my best years ago when I was first diagnosed with an underactive Thyroid. Because of his recommendations, I began feeling better and had more energy. Later, I began expanding my knowledge so I, in turn, could help others.”
When Elizabeth learned that Elaine was ready to retire, she met with her, and together they reached an agreement. It was perfect timing for both businesses.
While Ken and Elaine will always hold a special place in the hearts of local citizens, their legacy will be carried forward for future generations through S&S Smoothies and Supplements.
The staff at S&S is working hard to get all of the new additions from Ken’s Herbs added to their already extensive inventory of over 2500 products. They are thrilled to serve the community in an even larger capacity. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they work tirelessly to bring you the best experience possible.
S&S is open Monday – Friday 7:30 am – 5 pm and Saturday 10:30 am – 2 pm. Be sure to stop by Merchants Walk and check out all this store has to offer.
