MEDIchair Saskatoon is on a roll. The locally-owned and operated store which opened in 1988 was the first franchise operation at MEDIchair, a national Home Medical Equipment (HME) franchise company with 70 stores coast-to-coast.  Earlier this year, MEDIchair Saskatoon captured the company’s prestigious Franchise of the Year award. Today, it has just completed renovations to its store including increasing the floor space of its interactive showroom by 1,700 sq. ft. to approximately 4,000 sq. ft.


“It was just time to convert our busy store into an interactive, one-stop-shop where customers can experience first-hand a full range of HME products,” says co-owner Brenda Rodyck.  “The Saskatoon market is thriving for us and today’s customers are very demanding in terms of ‘test driving’ and experiencing various healthcare products before they buy the one that is best suited to their individual needs. MEDIchair Saskatoon’s strengths lie in our customer service and our expertise in accessibility and mobility products.  Our new showroom mirrors those strengths.” The renovation also included updates to the MEDIchair Saskatoon’s service department, vehicle installation bay, offices and storage. ”


Adds Rodyck, “We meticulously designed our showroom to make it an enjoyable interactive experience for our customers.  We have products like a working walk-in bathtub with real water.  You can take a ride on a real porch lift or experience what it’s like to ride a straight or curved stair lift.  We have a functioning bedroom so customers can see exactly how everything would work in their home. We also have a working van lift to move wheelchairs and scooters. Customers can even experience a turning front passenger seat that helps people with mobility challenges get in and out of a vehicle.”


Like most good entrepreneurs Rodyck is quick to praise her 13 employees, many of whom are long serving. “One of the keys for our ongoing business success, is our focus on customer service. Simply put, customers like the people, the products and the service that they receive at MEDIchair Saskatoon. Now we have an interactive showroom that allows our customers to maximize their experience with us.”
