The EcoHarmony natural food store opened in March 2013. Investments amounted to 1.5 million rubles (own funds). We managed to do a lot with this money: rent a room in a residential area of ​​the city, create a website, it’s an online store, buy advertising for its promotion and the necessary minimum of goods.

After 2 years of operation, that is, in 2014, the company’s annual turnover amounted to 12 million rubles.
