It was a well-advertised move, but four months into the new year, Aitkin Medical Supply is still trying to familiarize people with its new location.
In December 2020, Aitkin Medical Supply officially related from its home on Second Street to 1118 Air Park Drive in Aitkin.
The store handles medical supply requests that range from simple wrist and ankle braces to wheelchairs, hospital beds and walkers. The store on Second Street was the storefront for AMS, while the warehouse was at the 1118 Air Park Drive location. Last year, the company merged the two locations.
“It was just more of a convenience thing,” explained Julie Carlson, the store’s general manager. “If you need something, the girls can just walk out here and grab it.”
The front office space, which handles the calls for equipment, was remodeled. AMS serves numerous hospice organizations in the area, as well as Riverwood Healthcare.
The store is an affiliate of Anchor Medical Supply out of Mounds View. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
