Brookhaven, MS (PRWEB) June 30, 2006
The SCOOTER Store, America’s leader in changing lives by providing power wheelchair and scooters to those with mobility impairments, celebrated the Grand Opening of its expanded new Brookhaven location from noon until 2 p.m. Friday, June 30. The showroom is located at 639 Brookway Boulevard.
Store manager Derrick Pattie invited Brookhaven-area residents to come meet the staff, enjoy refreshments and learn about mobility solutions. "A person’s ability to retain their independence and perform activities of daily living in their own home is tremendously important," Pattie said. "This is a great opportunity for people with mobility challenges and their caregivers to learn how to operate our products and to find out firsthand what options are available to help maintain that freedom."
The celebration was featured on a live on-site radio remote broadcast by 92.1 WBKN-FM. Members of the Brookhaven/Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce joined representatives from The SCOOTER Store for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m., and WBKN-FM gave away tickets to a Tim McGraw/Faith Hill concert at 2 p.m. Food was provided by Little Caesar’s Pizza. Licensed massage therapist Cydnee Russell offered free massages and District VII Home Health will provide complimentary blood pressure and glucose checks.
Besides power chairs and scooters, the store will feature a broad range of healthcare products including lift chairs, bath and safety items, rollators and other therapeutic items. The SCOOTER Store also assists consumers with insurance paperwork and provides in-home service on the power chairs and scooters it sells.
The new Brookway Boulevard location replaces a previous retail store that had served the needs of people in the area since 2004. It is part of the company’s nationwide network of retail stores, distribution centers, service specialists and account managers across the country.
"Our retail stores allow more customers to test our various models, talk to our highly trained scooters staff one-on-one and see our healthcare solutions for active living," explained Doug Harrison, founder and CEO of The SCOOTER Store. "We’re here to help people regain their freedom, independence and personal dignity by giving them mobility."
Harrison explained that by setting and maintaining the highest standards in the industry for more than 15 years, The SCOOTER Store has earned a reputation for honesty and integrity. In 2003, the company was accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Healthcare, Inc.
"We work closely with our customers, their physicians, Medicare and other insurance providers to provide the best service and most stringent level of accountability possible," he said.
