MedCare closes storefront

Friday, August 25, 2017

BRADFORD, Pa. – MedCare Equipment Company has closed its retail store on East Main Street here. A company spokeswoman told The Bradford Era that the store was closed due to lower foot traffic and a change in business philosophy. “What we determined over the last several years is that serving people in a storefront doesn’t actually serve them where they are,” Robin Jennings told the newspaper. “Home medical equipment is served to people at their point of need.” MedCare will continue to offer diabetic and CPAP clinics at the location through the end of the year, according to the newspaper. The company will also continue to deliver HME to area patients in their homes, it said. MedCare had been operating the storefront since 2013, according to the newspaper. The company is headquartered in Greensburg, Pa., and has four other locations in Pennsylvania, and one location in Jamestown, N.Y.
