Pure ‘N Simple Natural Foods has been a fixture on West Winter Street since the days when downtown Delaware, Ohio wasn’t the cool place to be. However, it will soon be relocating to Western Delaware the company announced on Facebook recently.

Pure ‘N Simple is moving to 554 West Central Avenue Suite 4 — the retail center fronted by Shorty’s Pizza — on the city’s west side. The new location merges Pure ‘N Simple with its sister company, Soul Collective, and will see the addition of reiki, reflexology and a salt lounge.

Sadly, Pure N Simple will probably not be the last downtown casualty brought on – or hastened – by the pandemic.
