HearAtLast opens its first stand-alone U.S. location

TORONTO HearAtLast Holdings, which operates hearing clinics within select Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations, has announced the opening of its U.S. first clinic in The Villages, an adult community in Florida.

Prior to the opening, HearAtLast Stores operated exclusively within select Wal-Mart Stores and Sam’s Clubs throughout Canada. The company has nearly doubled its locations expanding from eight to 15 outlets between October and December of 2007. With the newest location, there are currently 16 hearing clinics in Canada and the United States.

The U.S. HearAtLast location is the product of a joint venture between HearAtLast and Vivatone Hearing Systems, a maker of digital hearing aids.

HearAtLast locations sell a selection of hearing aids and offer complimentary screening tests, clinical hearing tests, instant custom MP3 headphones and custom hearing protection.
