When JJ Pursell first arrived in Portland, she found herself without access to one of her favorites stores, a place which sold medicinal herbs. Rather than complain, she decided to open up her own store, simply named The Herb Shoppe. The venture proved successful, and she opened locations as far away as New York City to provide customers with organic and wild-crafted herbal supplements. Most recently, she and her business partner Amanda Furbee opened a second Portland location, The Herb Shoppe Pharmacy - Mississippi Ave.
Rather than dedicate the whole space to retailing herbs, the duo decided to build part of this new pharmacy as a kitchen, a move with multiple benefits. Firstly, they make many of their supplements fresh on site, bottling the herbs the very day they stock the shelves. Secondly, they use the space to lead classes, teaching students the ingredients and methodology to produce their own products.
