Allegro Announces Webs First Online
Home Health Care Superstore’


SCOTTSDALE, AZ. – Thursday, August 6, 1998-- Allegro -Home Health Care Supplies- today announced the launch of the Web’s first home health care superstore, . The site features discounted pricing on over 2000 name brand home health care products and medical supplies, which can be purchased directly through the site. Product categories range from wheel chairs and power scooters to incontinence products and daily living aides.

Shoppers can view Allegro’s entire product offering online, complete with detailed photos, product descriptions and up-to-the-minute discounted pricing.  With the use of any major credit card, products can be purchased 24-hours per day and conveniently delivered right to the customer's door. All purchases are conducted using the latest encryption security technology, providing customers with a worry-free shopping experience.  Other features on the site include a search engine, links to related disability resources, a free catalog offer and an area to subscribe to the Allegro “Hot Deals” email list.

According to Allegro’s President and CEO, Craig Hood, “Several resellers and manufacturers in the health care products and medical equipment supply industry have web sites, but most do not offer on-line ordering or, if they do, have very limited product lines.  We believe that the Internet is a viable channel for home health supplies.  It’s nice not having to compete with the traditional retailers struggling to survive reduced Medicare reimbursements, shrinking profit margins and the expense of a retail location. With the Web’s first “Online Home Health Care Superstore,” we can benefit from low overhead and increased product selection. Add to that the convenience of home delivery and you have a winning combination,” continued Hood.

“Health care professionals, people living with disabilities, or anyone looking for products to maintain independence or an active lifestyle, will likely find the best and least expensive way to buy,” says Hood. “Allegro’s electronic commerce approach to business can save customers up to 40% on some products.”

According to Hood, “Allegro’s customers use the Internet as their primary vehicle to the outside world, or as a tool to locate information and resources. Our online customer base includes disabled individuals, senior citizens, healthcare professionals and family-members/friends shopping on behalf of a loved one.  As anticipated, customers find buying home health care products online both a convenience and a discrete alternative to shopping in a retail environment. Health care professionals have been especially receptive to our broad product selection.”
