Flourish + Live Well
In 2019 Regie Brown and Sally Stirnkorb started their wellness shop in Downtown Oceanside. In their mission to bring natural options to those in need and to support meaningful programs, they opened Flourish + Live Well. The shop features natural solutions to pain management, skin care and a variety of items developed with a specific cause in mindThey set up their wellness shop in Oceanside because of personal connections to the North County area as well as the clear growth of the city. Oceanside is experiencing substantial change and a shop focused on health and well being fits perfectly into that rebirth.
The beautifully curated shop is calming to the senses. Regie invites all to stop by and discuss their needs and goals for holistic pain management. This is a welcoming space to acquire knowledge on CBD and what type of solution might best fit your needs.
Regie and Sally take pride in the products they carry. A strict process is upheld for each addition to their inventory. Their main goal is your health and wellness. Stop by during Mother’s Day Is Sweet to find relief and relaxation.
In November 2021, Al Fresko, the original graze and luxury outdoor dining experience company, joined the ranks of Downtown's newest shopping experience called the Tremont Collective. This unique concept of an entire building designed to fit the collective group was appealing to this San Diego-based business.
