This company offers free herbal consultations and over 700 high-quality supplements, including Nature's Sunshine Products.  Shelf signs identifying the nine body systems (circulatory, digestive, glandular, immune, intestinal, nervous, respiratory, structural and urinary) and shelf-talkers under each supplement make shopping an educational journey to good health.

This company also offers the new patent pending Apron Gun Holster which is ideal for store owners and employees that are licensed to carry a concealed weapon.  Imagine ... you're stocking shelves, trouble walks in ... and your gun is 10 feet away.  The AGH holster allows you to inconspicuously carry your licensed weapon whether you are standing behind the counter or walking around the store.  Your hidden weapon will always be with you and ready to protect you against robbery, while your customers will never know that you are armed.  The AGH holster is ideal for convenience stores, gas stations, hotels, motels, etc.; barber, beauty and nail shops; quick cash stores, hardware stores, pawn shops, coin dealers, restaurants (including pizza delivery, etc.); all small businesses and those wishing a sense of protection.
