OTTUMWA — Friends helped a couple put their sign up over the weekend so they could open their new business. The owners say they hope they make many friends, whether they speak Spanish or English, through their new Domi's Nutricion store.
The shop is near Ottumwa High School, at the corner of Jefferson and East Second Street. The owners, Alberto and Domi Tlatenchi, said they are enthusiastic about the Herbalife products they will distribute from their new location.
The products are marketed as being helpful for losing weight, or for improving daily intake of vitamins and minerals, like a supplement. Domi said she has used Herbalife teas and shakes to maintain good health and nutrition for the past 17 years.
She'll be keeping her first, similar business, which is located in Omaha. Her husband will be running the shop in Ottumwa. At the Nebraska shop, she said, up to 20 people per day come in and she prepares their shake. In some of the plans, the shake can be used to take the place of a meal, company literature claims.
Domi and Alberto speak both English and Spanish, and say everyone is welcome.
Further information on Herbalife products and the international company, as well as reviews, are available online. Or contact the shop directly at 515-771-7067.
Domi's Nutricion is closed on Sundays.
