HearAtLast CEO Sets Goal to Become Canada's Largest Chain of Hearing Devices

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - October 22, 2009) - HearAtLast Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRAL), a leading provider of suitable affordable solutions to clients with hearing needs in the billion dollar hearing loss market, announced today that Company game plan is to become Canada's largest distribution channel of Hearing Devices and related products and services under its hearing store model co-located within select Wal-Marts in Canada.

"As we continue to expand throughout Canada, we clearly see that we can soon become the nations largest network of hearing stores," stated Mr. Matthew Sacco; President and CEO. Mr. Sacco went on to explain that HearAtLast has followed a similar path to that of food Giant Kellogg's. During the great depression Kellogg's recession strategy was simple, 'advertise and employ.' HearAtLast is taking a similar approach while maintaining overheads and expanding their footprint in the Canadian Hearing Healthcare industry. As our clinics gain critical mass, we staff accordingly using our network of hearing instrument specialists and audiologists. This approach is felt in the EARS of our patients as we have coined the term "Expert Service, Exceptional Technology, Unbeatable Price." Our model is simple, make hearing aids accessible, affordable, service what you sell and do not over complicate the process. This formula for success is due in part to our locations and the support of the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart.

Furthermore, "not only do we want to become the most successful provider of hearing instruments, we also want to become the most recognizable company which consumers associate with value and superior service," added Mr. Sacco. HearAtLast Holdings is on the heals of two major competitors in the Canadian market. The largest group having been in business for over 30 years has over 50 clinics and satellite locations in 4 provinces, another has been in business for 6 years and have 35 locations and are located in Ontario. HearAtLast is rapidly approaching these competitors in just 3 short years and is on target to becoming Canada's Largest Hearing Company. Earlier this year Hear USA announced that it had sold 23 of their Ontario locations for $23.7M and gave further validation that the Hearing business in Canada is a sought after and growing industry and HearAtLast is in this at the right timing.
