    What Our Customers Are Saying


    I have been in multiple times since they opened and I love this store! Well organized, clean and really friendly staff. The owner is very friendly and genuinely cares about the customers. I was looking at some hair products and one of the employees came over and showed me her favourites and I ended up buying everything she recommended and I am not disappointed! My hair feels and smells amazing! This is seriously my favourite store in Fredericton! Such a great variety of products that you can feel safe using :)

    I am so grateful to all the staff, especially Eleanor, who have been super helpful when I have come into the store or called in. I only recently discovered Sequoia Fredericton, but IMO, having worked in the service industry myself, the greatest achievement of a business is to have a team that exceeds service expectations and strives to offer 'personalized' care to every person who walks through the door. This is what I get at Sequoia, which is now my go-to store! Thanks :)
