The store is now Empire Health Foods. All the old, expired and stale products (and yes there were a ton of them) were removed and replaced with new, fresh and unexpired stock. The store is thoroughly cleaned, better lit, reorganized and much more pleasant. The new owner, Mike, is excited and eager to meet new customers. The staff is well trained and very friendly. I can understand why there were so many old negative comments about Ed's Health Foods, but there is a new owner and a new attitude, so give it a chance. You will find it to be an infinitely better experience

I have been to Ed's Health store for some time now with never a problem. Ed's parents have always been kind and helpful. But today was another story and, sadly, I will not be returning to their establishment. While in line to pay for my products, which I patiently waited for help as Ed's wife was helping another customer and he could not find what I needed, I noticed the shelf behind the register was starting to fall. Both Ed and his wife were helping a customer at the register and I thought I'd help them by going around to the shelf to hold it up and let them know that the products needed to be removed before all of the stuff came tumbling down. As I reached for the falling shelf to straighten it out, both shelf came crashing down with all the products. One of the products broke open and spilled all over the floor. This is when the elder Ed turned around and asked me what I was doing. I explained what had happened and that I was trying to help, he seemed to not even hear what I said and was blaming me for being their and knocking down the shelves. At first I thought he was kidding, as did my friend who saw it all while we were in line. Finally, I stopped explaining and just helped clean up. When I went to pay for my items, he was also putting in the stuff that broke plus more from the shelf for me to pay for. At this point, I told him I didn't need his products and would not be returning. Very sad.

I was dismayed at reading the poor reviews of Ed's Health Food when I recently went online to look for their phone number.
I moved here about 12 years ago, (from the city), and have always found Ed and his family to be a friendly and knowledgable resource in our community. His parents were elderly 12 years ago, so for those of you who say his dad is ornery, you may need to educate yourself a bit on what may happen to us when we get older. We all will be there some day, and it isn't always pretty. The fact that his parents are still a viable part of their son's business, says a lot about the man that they raised. I have never had a problem with dated goods, but have always felt as a consumer it is my job to check for these things prior to purchase. They have a lot of product in that store and being a family run business, it may not be able to get checked as well as a bigger chain run business, but with the loving care I have always received when sick and in need of a remedy, I think I can overlook that:)
Very glad to still have this business in our community!

HA! Its so hilarious that the last reviewer would leave such a comment literally telling people not to question their integrity when they've been selling expired products for over 3 years at least. How long before someone is considered bad business.

My experience! : Let me first say the selection is dreadful, then the things you might pick up are expired. Didnt think to check because I wanted to trust "country folk" as you put it ED. Figured thatd be more trustworthy than the city even. I WAS SO WRONG! 80% of groceries were expired, some expired for months. I went back when ED was there and he couldnt refund my cash (probably due to lack of customers) and gave me a check. I love small business and even took an hour of my time to write him a personal letter describing some helpful ways he could turn his business into an awesome health haven. He in turn, didnt even open the letter before throwing it away, telling me that he was an immortal businessman and that he doesnt need my bulls**t. DIDNT EVEN OPEN IT! Lol. Then I attempted to cash the check...he stopped payment! I called him back and forced him onto the phone (he was in a meeting...i guess with his mom and dad considering its a small business). Im not an idiot. Then claims he didnt stop the check and would check it tomorrow, I called his bulls**t considering I went to HIS bank to cash it and THEY told me HE called in and stopped payment! Then it got fun, I told him it was bad business, he told me I was bad business...I told him that made as much sense as a fat vegan...(which he is...apparently) He started to fumble words and sounding dumb as I ridiculed his terrible business practices. Then he just hung up...no refund...then I went to find a review and HEY everyones saying the same thing! F*** off Ed!

Ed is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He keeps up to date on all the latest news and products info. His parents love to grab your ear with stories of what works for them and what sells. OK, so when there's a lot of things going on, some things may expire and be overlooked - not a big deal.

I've read all the comments and seriously folks, you need to learn some people skills.These people have lived in the area most, if not all, of their life. We are a country town with country ways. If you walk in with a city attitude (ie rude, accusatory, etc), they will throw it right back at you. Rule number one out here - respect the elders. You are more than welcome to move back to the city.

I agree with most of the below reviews about bad customer service. The first time went in, the older man was not very pleasant. I thought maybe he was just having a bad day. Gave it a second chance and he was even more unpleasant. I heard him yell at a customer. Also I did see that some of the products are past the expiration date. I will not shop there again.

The worst ever - people working there didn't know what they sell or why told me to look myself, and yes many things are out-dated. I asked all 3 times if owner could get back to me so I could ask - that was a joke! This morning I just called again and got an old lady that said it's too loud in here to hear you. I asked about low sodium pre-made foods as I have a very back hbp problem she said I don't know what we sell - come in and look.

I have gone to Ed's several times. There is an elderly couple who work there full time. The man is obnoxious, mean, and sarcastic. Yesterday he threw my products back onto the shelf when I didn't want them, and when I was in the parking lot he opened the door and spit as he looked me in the face. I had told him how much he upset me while I was in the store and that I would never return. Absolutely shocking! Karen

A great variety of supplements and very interesting grocery selection. If you can't find "it" elsewhere, they probably have it. The proprietress is delightful. It's a little cramped but that's part of the charm. Be a good shopper though and be alert to expiration dates, which is a bugaboo for many of these independent shops.

I had a very unpleasant experience at Ed's Health Food Store in Hackettstown,NJ. Ed is knowledgeable about his products, but when I questioned him about the many expired dates on his products-- he became very angry and defensive! When I asked him why he was so angry and nasty, I was a customer just asking a question, he told me to get out of his store!! I will NEVER GO BACK. It is dirty, messy and unorganized!!

I love going to Ed's Health food Store. The owner of the story is very knowledgeable about all of the products that he sells in his store. He has a huge inventory of supplements, vitamins, essential oils, books, and lots and lots of fresh, canned and refrigerated food. He always has time for a chat and will steer you clear or direct you to what you need. I love the all natural soaps and fragrances he has there. Small store packed with goods.
