MADE in Lake County is part of a paid partnership.
Welcome to MADE in Lake County! MADE introduces you to the people and stories behind local Lake County businesses. Today it is our pleasure to introduce you to Liliana Espinosa. Liliana is the owner of Corner Health Foods, a health and wellness shop located in Mundelein.
This is not your typical Mompreneur story, and Liliana Espinosa is not your average entrepreneur. The moment you walk in the door at Corner Health Foods and are greeted by her warm smile you will know you have met a different kind of business owner.
While Liliana had a degree in business she really had no idea that she would one day end up owning a health and nutrition store and being a trusted homeopathic resource in the Lake County community. But she is, and it’s all because someone took a chance on her.
Liliana immigrated from Mexico 15 years ago and landed in Mundelein. Speaking no English the owner of Corner Health Foods gave her a chance and hired her.
Liliana fully immersed herself in the job, learning English while also learning about the products and companies they carried. Growing up in Mexico homeopathic and natural remedies were the norm, so much of what she was learning was second nature to her.
Several years later when pregnant with her daughter the owner told her she wanted her to take over the business. She was going to retire and the only option was to close the store or find a new owner and she wanted her to be the owner. Liliana was surprised and honored. She took over the store and has put her heart and soul into it ever since.
Liliana researches every product that Corner Health Food carries to make certain it’s the best. She also looks into every manufacturer to sure they are using the best practices and ingredients. She doesn’t just want to sell you a product she wants to make sure you are happy and feel better and will go above and beyond to ensure that you do.
Liliana is passionate about living a healthy life in harmony with the body and environment. She just lights up when you start asking her questions and you can see she truly cares for people. When Liliana is not at Corner Health Foods she is an active member of her community working with and supporting other local businesses and organizations.
Stop in and see Liliana today! We’ll be learning more about what Corner Health Food offers throughout the month.
