Faster than you can say “Your health and wellness are our primary concern,” Locatel Health & Wellness helped create the quickest way to build business by hosting an Aventura Marketing Council SpeedBiz meeting – the “short and sweet” monthly networking event presented by the AMC’s Small Business Development Committee.
Locatel marketing director Carolina Zisman greeted a great turnout of business and community leaders to the morning Lightning Biz event likened to “speed dating for your business – only better!“
“SpeedBiz has become a favorite to many Aventura Marketing Council members as it provides a way to connect one-on-one with new members and a way to reconnect with long-time members,” said Aventura Comm. Michael Stern of Stern Bloom Media, who serves as Chair of the AMC’s Small Business Development Committee.
While enjoying breakfast at the Hallandale Beach Locatel, conveniently located in the Diplomat Plaza on Hallandale Beach Boulevard, AMC members learned more about Locatel’s fast-track success based on the innovate concept to offer “a one-stop shop to maintain or recover customers’ quality of life.”
“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,” Zisman explained. “You’ll also find traditional and organic medicines in the pharmacy as well as vitamins, homeopathic remedies, herbs, onsite eye and hearing-aid departments, maternity and baby products and beauty / personal care lines.
“We offer exceptional values and because we’re small, great customer service is always especially appreciated. Locatel is open seven days a week – and experts in each department are available to answer questions and address concerns.”
The Hallandale Beach store is the first U.S. location for Locatel – a family-owned business that experienced rapid growth after starting in Venezuela, where there are now 40 stores – plus there are many more locations in Colombia, Mexico and throughout Central America. But the universal language all customers understand is “Locatel is the place to find the best price!”
