HIGHLAND PARK — Juice cleansing comes to Highland Park with The Juice on York Boulevard. The store is the second for co-owners Elizabeth Halpern and Melissa Cronkhite, whose first juice shop in Atwater Village allows customers to try and reverse their not-so-healthy habits with green apple, lemon, kale and triple ginger juice or chocolate almond milk if juice cleansing seems intimidating.
The Juice offers milks and juices priced at $9 and if the fancy strikes a customer can purchase a six pack of for $54. Their cleansing program is categorized as Defend, Decrease and Detox, and they will be offering a delivery service to customers in a five mile radius.
The 900 square-foot juice bar lands on the fringe of York Boulevard’s boutique corridor on Avenue 49. Originally set to open back in November the owners ran into permit issues and had to postpone opening their doors until now.
