Unlike Vegan Essentials former storefront location, they're new location is strictly a warehouse, although, on occasion, they allow the public to come shop by appointment.
The warehouse is pretty big and has about 10 aisles stocked with vegan shoes, shirts, totes, candy, faux meat, vegan jello, shampoo, Sheese & Cheezly vegan cheese, vitamins, protein powder, and more.
Vegan Essentials encourages locals to shop and place their order online, but mark in the comments field if you'd like to pick up the order in person (list your number so they can call when it's ready), in which case they won't charge you shipping.
As Vegan Essentials is mainly an online company, they don't have regular store hours. Call ahead if you want to see if you can visit the warehouse in-person.

Vegan Essentials is incredible. It is definitely a great place to order from as a consumer. Being so closely related to me, I would prefer to order online, and just pick up my order in person which they have no problem doing. I am very proud of the dedicated owners who are legitimately passionate about their "small" business. VEGESS is so important to vegans all over the country, and i feel fortunate to have it in my backyard.
I love Vegan Essentials and am so proud that it's from Wisconsin. While I hate that the new location on the northwest side is SOOOO far from most vegans (who live on the southeast side), I'm so happy that their business has allowed them to expand to such a big warehouse that is conveniently located for the owners.
This was my first time in the new location (I loved the storefront of the old location), and it was weird to be walking through an all-vegan warehouse. It was pretty exciting. The staff was really nice and friendly, even though I know we were interrupting them placing orders. I'm really glad they let us visit in person and my mom and I stocked up on our favorite shampoos, vegan cheese, skin cream, and more.
At the last location, it didn't seem to be a big deal for the owners to ring up in-store purchases, but at the warehouse, the woman helping us had to go online and basically search out everything we bought and place the order online for us. She was really nice, even though this must have been annoying. As mentioned in the main description, they strongly encourage people to place orders online then pick them up in person.
