Locatel Health & Wellness is celebrating its sixth year serving South Florida with a Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, December 11th at 1715 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd.
“We’re trying to provide the communities of Hallandale Beach, Aventura and surrounding areas with activities to help them identify health issues and find out how they are doing,” said Locatel CEO Maurice Ruah. “We will be offering free tests for glucose and cholesterol levels, vision, hearing and blood pressure. There will be a lot of doctors, chiropractors and professionals from other medical disciplines providing information about what they do, as well as suppliers offering their products.”
The family event will also feature food, entertainment and healthy activities such as a Zumba class and cardio balloons from 12 noon to 1 p.m., he said.
At $18, flu shots will be offered at the lowest cost around, so fair-goers can get accustomed to thinking of Locatel as the place to find the best price, says Locatel Marketing Director Carolina Zisman. Customers can get a $5 discount off any purchase of $30 or more. A $10 gift card goes to anyone filling a prescription at the pharmacy for the first time.
“Locatel is a family-owned business, we started in Venezuela, where we now have 40 stores,” she said. “We have ten locations in Colombia, four in Mexico and several more throughout Central America. The concept is to provide a one-stop shop to maintain and recover your health.”
Locatel is the largest supplier of durable medical equipment in South Florida, with a large inventory of wheelchairs, scooters, walkers and more onsite so there’s no waiting. In addition, you’ll find traditional and organic medicines, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, herbs, onsite eye and hearing-aid departments, maternity and baby products, and beauty and personal care lines.
“We’re open seven days a week,” Zisman says. “Because we are small, we have great customer service and competitive prices.”
Ruah invites any business to participate in this community networking opportunity.
