MyMedMart opens new location
MyMedMart has moved to a new location and on Friday, the business will hold an open house and ribbon cutting.
The business, which provides home medical equipment and supplies and offers confidential services to help people deal with new and ongoing medical situations, moved from its longtime Seneca Street location to the former Thrifty White Pharmacy building at 909 Willson Ave.
The business is owned by the brother-sister team of Dr. Tom Chambers of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Maureen Seamonds of Webster City. Chambers was setting up an orthopedic practice and Maureen was looking for a more convenient way to get the many specialized medical supplies her son, Nick, was needing because of his serious disabilities. They collaborated to found e-medmart, an online store in 1998. The company now does business as MyMedMart as a website as well as having stores in Clarion and Webster City.
“We’re really hopeful the new location gives people better access. We loved our old historic building but you know, the compromise was a curb and parallel parking,” said Seamonds.
The new location features a large parking area behind the building and easy access both at the front and back doors.
“We want it to be very convenient and accessible for all of our customers,” she said.
Seamonds added that the additional space will also allow the business to add more products in the store.
“We can order items very very quickly, but it’s still nice to be able to have things that are ready to go and we’ll be able to offer more services,” said Seamonds.
Mark Ferguson serves as business and financial director. He has been a paramedic for 30 years. Teresa Bergeson is home care coordinator and has been providing consistent, professional care for 26 years. Nick Nuehring is a customer service representative. He’s studying to become a paramedic and provides support services for the team.
“The MMM team is highly trained and certified and they offer compassionate solutions for each home care situation,” Seamonds said. “It’s nice to have someone warm and helpful to take care of you. I think we really provide a hands-on, personal touch.”
MyMedMart is Medicare approved and fully accredited.
Hamilton County Public Health will hold a flu clinic at MyMedMart during the open house.
