Chuck has owned Grapevine since 1988, opening the store after working in another area natural foods establishment for over four years. It was during that four year period that he began to learn and understand the natural foods industry, no only as a vocation but also as a lifestyle. Prior to that, Chuck worked in various supermarkets for about eight years, eventually becoming the Produce and Perishable Manager at Food Lion's first Charlottesville, Virginia store. During that time he began to gain extensive knowledge of the fresh produce industry, something he uses presently in the buying and presentation of various organic fruits and vegetables sold at Grapevine Health & Nutrition. Chuck is very proud of what he has created in Newtown over these many years and is excited to continue serving his customers with the many selections of organic produce, high quality natural/organic/non-GMO groceries, supplements and CBD products and the finest locally-produced garden plants. When he is not busy at the store, Chuck enjoys working out, reading, watching baseball (particularly the Phillies!), growing things in the garden and, of course, spending time with his wonderful family.

Steve, Nutrition Specialist
Steve has worked at Grapevine since 2010, coming to us after a lengthy stint at GNC Newtown, where he cultivated many great customer contacts, some of whom he still maintains to this day.

He has been a vegan or vegetarian for many years and is extremely passionate about health and nutrition and how certain foods can affect how a person feels. He has extensive knowledge of a wide range of supplements and is very comfortable sharing that knowledge with young and older people alike. He will help you with whatever specific nutrition and health goals you may have.
