About the Owner
Tom Johnson, the owner and originator of one of the most unique stores in the country, discovered the Edgar Cayce philosophy in 1968 when he read The Sleeping Prophet. While attending the first A.R.E. youth conference in the fall of that year, he became interested in the medical readings and inquired about obtaining the items they suggested. When he found, to his surprise, that there was no central source of supply, he became convinced that there should be such a place.
After trying unsuccessfully to persuade the owner of a local health food store to become a supplier, he resolved to do it himself, on a part-time basis. He returned to New Jersey, where he was working as a computer systems engineer, and began to do some research. Soon afterwards, he met the well known physiotherapist, Dr. H.J. Reilly, who encouraged him to continue. After a few months, he realized that it was impractical to do anything from a distance, and determined to make the leap of moving to Virginia Beach.
In February of 1969, the Heritage Store opened its doors to make the hard-to-find items mentioned in the Edgar Cayce readings more easily available. The rest of the story, from our humble beginnings in a tiny 12' x 20' store to the relatively large quarters we occupy today, is history!
Our growth has paralleled the explosion of interest in holistic health which has taken place in the past 25 years. With divine assistance, we have expanded steadily and made several moves - each time to much larger quarters.
In the Heritage Store today, our inventory of Cayce remedies and related items has grown from the original two dozen products to approximately 200! In accord with the advice of the readings themselves.
