EGAN Medical Supply Expands to Mississippi Coast

Medical Supply Company to Open E-Commerce Fulfillment Center Near MS Beach

EGAN Medical Supply, a Louisiana-based provider of quality medical supplies, equipment, supplements, orthopedic and maternity care products has announced the grand opening of a new location in Long Beach, Mississippi.

While not a conventional walk-in, brick-and-mortar storefront like EGAN’s Covington, LA based medical supply store, the new location will help better serve the organization’s loyal customer base by designating an entire facility to order processing and shipping of products purchased online by customers across the United States and Canada.

The Long Beach location will not be open to walk-ins, and customers are not encouraged to visit the facility in hopes of going shopping. The store in Covington will continue to accommodate walk-ins, however the Mississippi location is strictly intended to enhance the company’s online campaign by providing a dedicated facility and staff whose responsibilities will center entirely around the fulfillment of orders placed via the company’s website, and of course inventory storage and management.

The move is intended to improve the efficiency of the company’s operations by separating the brick-and-mortar side of the business from the online/e-commerce side. Each respective location will maintain its own separate inventory. One will exist strictly to serve the needs of walk-in customers and patients who require medical equipment and/or supplies immediately, whereas the other exists solely to ensure prompt and timely fulfillment of orders placed over the internet by customers from all across North America.

An EGAN spokesman issued a statement assuring the firm’s Louisiana customer base that the new location is not part of a plan to close the Covington, LA storefront, and that the store will remain open to walk-in traffic for the foreseeable future.

However, the company did leave open the possibility that the new facility could eventually house and ship merchandise for yet-to-be-formed online retail companies, with the probability that any such companies that are eventually created will be far more niche-oriented than EGAN Medical, specializing in singular product lines such as maternity supports and mobility equipment.
