The new store, which is located at 2000 South McColl Road, Suite I, will be a resource for residents of the McAllen area, and the entire Valley region. The store’s grand opening was September 7, and members of the McAllen Chamber of Commerce joined the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“We provide people with the ability to retain their independence and perform daily living activities such as eating, grooming and going to the bathroom in their own homes,” said Esmeralda Gracia, the store manager. “We provide families, caregivers, and physicians with information on how to operate our products and to find out first-hand what options are available to help their loved ones and patients maintain their freedom.”
In addition to power wheelchairs and medical scooters, the store will stock a broad range of healthcare products including lift chairs, bath and safety items, rollators, and other therapeutic devices. The SCOOTER Store assists customers with insurance paperwork and provides in-home service on its power wheelchairs and scooters.
The new McColl Road location replaces a store that had been located in Brownsville. “We look forward to continuing to address the mobility needs of people living in the Valley,” Ms. Gracia said, noting that the store is part of the company’s nationwide network.
“We are proud to provide mobility equipment and service from our retail location in McAllen, and across the country,” said Doug Harrison, founder and CEO of The SCOOTER Store. “Our retail stores allow customers to test our various models, talk to our highly-trained staff and experience how our healthcare solutions can improve their quality of life. We’re here to help people regain their freedom, independence and personal dignity by giving them more mobility.”
Mr. Harrison noted 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 February, 2004, 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,” Mr. Harrison said. “We look forward to continuing that high level of service in the Valley. We are proud members of this community.”
