The Mandich Family is originally from Bishop, California. Nick Mandich Jr. started Owens Valley Drug, a pharmacy on the corner of Main St and Line St in Downtown Bishop. As our father grew up working in the pharmacy, he realized there was much more to health and wellness than pharmaceutical drugs. Our mother being a free spirited young hippie had always been interested in alternative medicine.
Falling in love in Mammoth Lakes, they decided to raise children and make the Eastern Sierra their home. As their passion grew for well being and nutrition, they came upon an opportunity to purchase and take over a health food store. Who knew that in 1992, it would be the beginning of a new era, a quest to bring awareness and availability to our town of Mammoth Lakes. Nick and Denise Mandich (Mom and Dad) built a solid foundation to grow as both Mammoth Lakes and the health industry expanded.
Growing up working in the health food store, both of the daughters, Silena and Tanya, knew the importance of health and nutrition, and wellness in the world. Taking over the family business in 2005, the girls knew it was time to expand the store. Now a 3000 Sq. Ft. neighborhood market, where your health in number one, Sierra Sundance Whole Foods is a thriving local business. This market is a dream come true!
Successfully in business for over 19 years, we have grown immensely and continued to stay tight knit, family-owned and operated.
