A NEW nutrition supplement shop has opened in Wheelock Street and the owner is delighted with the welcome she has received from shopkeepers and the community.

Victoria Haslam-Boyd has opened Big Kingz Nutrition where the Probert’s Butchers used to operate.

The shop opened on Monday, March 11 and Victoria is happy with how the opening day went and the welcome she has received.

Victoria, 41, said: “It has been really good so far. There seems to be a lot of interest from the community and everyone seems to be happy that the building is still being used.

“The shopkeepers in Wheelock Street are happy with the work that I have done to the building as well.

“They have all been so friendly. I have a lot of welcome messages as well.

“I’ve had walls taking down and a new floor put in and it now looks like a completely different building.

The preparation work to get the shop ready took four weeks and Victoria has only had positive feedback so far.

Victoria said: “People from the community have been walking past the shop window and waving at me, some have come in for a quick chat and wishing me luck.

“Some people have come in whilst they have been walking their dogs just to say hello.”

Big Kingz Nutrition offers residents meal preps and healthy snacks to sports massages and sun beds

Victoria said: “I sell pre-workout food, post-workout food, protein bars and full meal preps

“The meal preps will be good for people who do not train, I have already had a few people come in saying that they are really interested in the meals.

“The meals are all Gold Standard Nutrition. I sell a variety of frozen meals including chicken and rice and spaghetti bolognese.

"I also have vegetarian options in stock as well.”

Gold Standard Nutrition means that the meals do not have excess sugar, preservatives or carbohydrates.

Victoria is an experienced sports therapist and received her qualifications back in 2001.

However, this new venture marks a new challenge for her as this is the first shop that she has opened.

Victoria said: “I worked as a therapist in the spa in the Village Hotel in Liverpool so opening this shop has been a really exciting time for me and my family."

“I had to get a cake for the opening day. I know it is a nutrition shop but everyone is allowed a cheat day and I wanted to celebrate.”
