Downtown Princeton looks set to benefit from a new, walkable, independent small business in the coming months- and this one looks like something pretty special!“Arlee’s Raw Blends” is a juice bar- but that mere description seems to sell it short. Here is the back story:
“The inspiration for Arlee’s RAW BLENDS was Arlee, a new mother, who diligently prepared her own fresh juices daily for a 21 days cleanse. Arlee was amazed at the results – the weight loss was expected, but the new-found energy, rejuvenated complexion and natural glow were welcomed surprises.”
The new store, at 246 Nassau Street, is currently being fitted, with no opening date announced as yet- but surely some time this year! They will sell organic, cold-pressed, glass-bottled, locally-sourced, vegan blends of raw plant products. These include drinks labeled as ‘liquid vitamins’, and a series of ‘cleanse’ drinks, featuring a number of small-batch products including two different kale-based blends.
In case you can’t make it to the store, Arlee’s will offer ‘juice memberships’, where for the cost of between $130 and $450 per month, you can get juice delivered to your doorstep! That’s two different car-free juices options: either through the walkable, bikeable downtown store, or through home delivery. Great job! We’ve gotta say, if there is anywhere in Jersey where people might want a $450/month organic juice membership, it’s got to be Princeton! And in future, if you’re feeling slightly greasy after a full-size Hoagie Haven meal- you’ll know where to go for detox!
