Olive May’s journey across the decades
A Landmark Business
Operating since 1924, Olive May is a New Jersey landmark and their oldest natural food store.
It all started from a 500-square-foot store on Washington Street.
Opened by sisters Olive and Lena and later sold to Wayne Coffee Co., Olive May was eventually purchased by Nasar Arain.
East Orange Location
The store was opened in East Orange on a 6000-square-foot area.
Growth over the years
As the natural health industry grew, our store transformed into a household name.
