The paint can on the floor is a dead giveaway. The interior of Chaz Nutrition and Health, which opened recently at 612 Davis Street, is still being tweaked. But after talking with co-owner J. Klaer Twist, you get the sense that the store will continue to evolve, even after the paint cans disappear.
"I wanted to go with the Evanston thing of being like a little independent, with hard to find things," he says.
Laid back and friendly, Twist is in the store seven days a week. He shrugs, "I love retail."
Twist spent 10 years as manager, then co-owner of the Evanston GNC Nutrition store. After losing his lease at the Evanston Athletic Club, he moved into Sherman Plaza, but that didn’t work out.
