Brian and Kattie Richards are hoping to bring some of the good fortune they’ve experienced and spread it to Oak Harbor.

The Elmore couple recently opened a store downtown called Blast Off Nutrition, a place that offers alternative and holistic health options for people looking to lose weight and to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
