29 Apr Jo Anne’s Story: Celebrating Mothers
Motherhood is how our company began. Our founder Jo Anne recognized that her children were experiencing food allergies and other health challenges but had few
options available in rural Lindsay, Ontario.
Over the years, Jo Anne’s daughter Margo was by her side, sharing in this journey of expanding her vision of creating a healthy community. Working alongside her mother, Margo learned the in’s and out’s of running a business, following the ever changing trends and experiencing first-hand the benefits of healthy living as she raised her own two daughters. Margo and her husband Paul are the now-owners of Jo Anne’s Place, committed to continuing with Jo Anne’s vision while evolving to meet the needs of the community.
We’ve come a long way, but our mission has remained the same: to be a champion for wellness in the communities we serve, from the distinctive quality of products we select to our passion in caring for every relationship with which we are entrusted with. Throughout the years, we’ve had the opportunity to work alongside & serve mothers. We believe that encouraging each other is one of the most important things you can do for humankind.

With many staff who are mothers themselves, we can offer experiences and recommendations of products that are loved at Jo Anne’s Place. They say it takes a community to raise a child, we have seen the positive effects within our Jo Anne’s Place community. We celebrate the successes and offer support during the rough times, in the end we have multiple generations of families shopping and working at Jo Anne’s Place.
