Medical Equipment Expansion Well Underway

The Oswald’s 2015 expansion project is moving full steam ahead. Next time you are in the store make sure to take a peak across the way and see what we are up to. By the first week of July we should have carpeting installed, ceiling overhead and fixtures coming in and being installed. In mid July we will be adding inventory to the new space. Our lift chair selection will be expanded with around a dozen chairs on the sales floor. Our compression hosiery, walkers, wheelchairs, braces and support departments will also have new offerings.

Another neat thing will  be a bathroom display area that will include a shower, bathtub, toilet and sink! We will be able to show customers exactly how bathroom safety equipment can fit into their existing bath to help prevent slips and falls. We will also have many items on display that helps a patient with everyday tasks from sock pullers to shower chairs.

On another note we will not be having our traditional Sidewalk Sale this July. With all the commotion going on in the store with our expansion it is all hands on deck for the work inside the store. That said, it doesn’t mean we aren’t going to have some great deals on overstock and discontinued merchandise! As we rearrange the store there are going to be plenty of great deals. Some of them will find their way outside on our rolling carts. The rest of the bargains will be in the center aisle across from our front cash registers
