Brick & Mortar, Shop Locally
5 Advantages of a Brick and Mortar Store
A core benefit is the most obvious one, the ability to touch and see objects in person. Online stores can provide the consumer with pictures and videos, but actually holding the product can provide some tactile impressions that simply cannot be matched online. Particularly when it comes to the sale of hearing aids. The ‘in-store” experience simply cannot be matched online. Not to mention online stores can not determine if the hearing aids are properly inserted.
Instant gratification, the ability to buy an item and bring it home immediately. Not every hearing aid can be sold and brought home immediately but the option for many patients does exist.
The ability to support local merchants. We are aware how strongly most of our patients feel about supporting their local economy. Our patient demographic is keenly aware of the inter-connectivity of their financial well being to the financial well being of those around them. Even the younger demographic has slowly but surely begun to embrace the concept of “buy locally” with everything from food to clothing to home goods to electronics.
Our patients can speak directly to us, the experts in hearing sciences, about their purchase. We can provide information about the products and more importantly answer questions about the products that are bound to arise. Online stores provide answers to frequently asked questions but that’s of no use to a patient if their question isn’t listed.
