PLATTSBURGH - Robert Fiske of Peru is now the full-time manager of the local Nutrishop store, one of the fastest growing retail nutrition chains today.
When the store - located at 47 Smithfield Blvd., in Perrywinkle's Plaza - opened in October, Fiske was employed full-time as a pilot. However, since mid-December, Fiske has retained full management of the business and, since January, is no longer employed as a pilot.
His efforts are taking off since January was the Plattsburgh store's best month so far, according to Fiske, who said the best part of that success is getting more in touch with his customers.
"I have really enjoyed getting to know our customers more, and helping them to identify the things that will help them get maximum results for their efforts in exercise, weight loss, and just over all good health," said Fiske.
Fiske has researched the products he sells with the outcome of his research leading him to strike exclusive licensing for distribution with Katalyst, VitaSport, and NuTek products through Nutrishop. In addition to sports nutrition and weight loss, the store stocks vitamins, cutting-edge supplements, T-shirts and supplies, refrigerated sports beverages, quality snacks, teas, and gluten-free products. Nutrishop is also able to ship products anywhere in the United States.
