Orinda, CA, United States, 2009/12/15 - Senior Health Stores, Inc. has announced the launch of a fully functional website dedicated to educating seniors on a variety of ailments and providing them with solutions designed to help maintain a more active lifestyle.
Senior Health Stores is a joint venture between Dr. Larry Woodcox, DPM-DC CEO and Jeffrey Allyn, MS CMO.
“Our goal is to provide an easy to use and read online environment for medical information and access to products, making healthcare shopping more convenient”, said Dr. Woodcox. “It is highly important that people educate themselves on the ailments that plague them as well as the options that are available.”
Senior Health Stores’ educational information pages and health aid stores focus on foot-pain, hand-pain, Joint-pain, back-pain, hair-skin-nails, fitness, and mobility-aids just to name a few.
Dr. Woodcox has over 30 years experience as a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine and is a Board Certified Foot & Ankle Surgeon. Dr. Woodcox brings his years of clinical experience to Senior Health Stores.
“We are excited to offer an all-inclusive online resource that helps to educate senior citizens on what to expect from aging along with information about certain ailments that can be alleviated by utilizing specific products,” says Jeff Allyn, co-founder. “In this day in age, people, including seniors, are turning to the web to find information about health and wellness; we are dedicated to be part of that solution.”
Jeff Allyn brings over 20 years of experience in the marketing, business development, and online industries. Jeff has held active roles with multiple companies, most recently with FreshAWL — a distributor of Earth conscious waste treatment solutions for a cleaner greener planet™.
With the combined efforts of Dr. Woodcox and Mr. Allyn, Senior Health Stores is sure to provide seniors with a valuable experience. Gone are the days when the web was a place primarily for the young. Seniors have embraced the internet and many are comfortable with online shopping.
Senior shoppers are a rapidly growing market — according to the US Census Bureau, between 2005 and 2030, the senior market will grow to over 95 million people - that’s over four times the growth of the 18-59 age group for the same period. Furthermore, the Pew Internet & American Life Project stated in a report that the number of seniors who go online increased by 47 percent between 2000 and 2004.
Added to that, seniors control over 70% of all disposable income — spending over $7 billion online each year. Future growth rates, compiled with the increased uptake of the web by this demographic, will contribute to the success of Senior Health Stores in this lucrative market.
