Spotlight on Mystic Valley
Mystic Valley is a metaphysical retail store helping people of all spiritual and religious paths create their best lives. In 1987 our father, Vito Ponticello dreamt of a “Better Life Center” for the surrounding St. Louis community and made it a reality. His mission was to create positive transformation in people’s lives by encouraging discovery and discussion of their spiritual paths. This is the same mission we are on today. Mystic Valley has experienced many moves and changes throughout the years, but our current location in downtown Maplewood is the favorite so far! We’ve just celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and in October we will be celebrating 35 years in business!!
It seemed during the pandemic that people really felt the need to get in touch with their spirituality. It was our busiest year. We were so excited to see customers wanting to explore and learn more about their path and helping them create that sacred space at home. We absolutely love this! We are thrilled to have just launched a new website that makes shopping easier than ever and continue to transform our customers energy through metaphysical tools and support.
Our chamber membership is a way for us to connect with other businesses in our community. We have so much to learn from each other. Also, I feel more comfortable as well doing business with members of the chamber knowing that I am giving back to the community and working with an established company.
What is your favorite Maplewood or Richmond Heights Chamber business?
Wow, this one is tough as there are so many fantastic and unique businesses in Maplewood and Richmond Heights, and we shop or do business with quite a few. We are very food oriented here at Mystic Valley, so I’d have to say Crow’s Nest or Blue Duck.
