Biography In 1991 Mary-Ann and Mark Shearer opened their first shop in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. It was called “Mary-Ann’s Wholefood Emporium” – .It started out as a health food store supplying preservative-free dried fruit and light vegan meals and the dream was to have a place filled with ‘natural’ foods, clothing, furniture, energy-saving gadgets and a whole host of eco/natural lifestyle products.Here at Mary-Ann’s we pride our selves in bringing our customers the absolute best quality products available with minimum carbon footprint. Even our packaging is made from plants (cellophane made from cellulose) and can biodegrade in your very own composite heaps – but be sure to cut out our label, as unfortunately that is not as environmentally friendly. With the cost of retail space being what it is and the margins on natural products being what they are, they have brought that ’emporium’ to you online.. www.mary-anns.com for our whole story!
