MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - HearAtLast Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRAL), a leading provider of suitable affordable solutions to clients with hearing needs in the billion dollar hearing loss market co-located within select Wal-Mart Canada locations, announced today that its expansion plans will mirror the ever-increasing seniors demographic throughout Canada.

The HearAtLast model for Hearing Aid Testing and Dispensing co-located within select Wal-Mart Canada locations is poised for a significant upswing in Canada based on recent statistics Canada forecasts. The senior population (those 65 and older), will increase by 35% from 4.3 million to 5.8 million by year 2016. Senior-focused franchises are already the fastest-growing market segment in Canada. "These numbers fully support our growth initiatives and licensing agenda for expansion.

"HearAtLast has an industry-leading average age of 64 (6 years below traditional clinics) for first time buyers. This alone enables HearAtLast to provide devices 1.5 more times than current MarkeTrak studies indicate over the life of a patient. The funnel will be full for years to come, and with over 80 percent of Canadians shopping at Wal-Mart, the HearAtLast platform will surely prosper," added Mr. Sacco.
