Clemens also adds Healthnotes to Web site as at-home healthy living resource for shoppers
PORTLAND, Ore.--January 21, 2004--Healthnotes Inc. (HNI) today announced that Clemens Family Markets is the first store chain to roll out the new Healthnotes EasyAnswers Touchscreen kiosks in-store. Clemens features EasyAnswers Touchscreens running Healthnotes Healthy Living in twenty of its twenty-one stores to offer shoppers an interactive, up-to-date resource on health, food, nutrition, and lifestyle.
To complement the in-store resource, Clemens has also added Healthnotes Healthy Living to its Web site, www.clemensmarkets.com (click on Healthnotes).
"Clemens Family Markets is in business to serve our customers and help our customers make informed lifestyle choices," said Jack Clemens, President and CEO for Clemens Family Markets. "We are especially excited to offer Healthnotes in-store because it's a win-win situation. The kiosks serve as reliable self-service resources that enhance the shopping experience for our customers, while also encouraging shoppers to buy more products, improving our bottom line."
The new Healthnotes EasyAnswers Touchscreen was designed specifically for retail use and features eye-catching visuals and built-in user instructions. The kiosk is a "plug-and-play" unit that is easy for retailers to install and maintain.
Healthnotes Healthy Living includes reliable, easy-to-understand information on health concerns, supplements, foods, nutrition, special diets, weight control, and more. It also offers hundreds of tasty, healthy recipes where shoppers need them most-at the supermarket. Shoppers can print the articles and recipes free of charge.
"Recent studies have shown that consumers look to supermarkets as a primary source for managing their health and want resources available to them in-store," stated Schuyler Lininger, HNI president and CEO. "Healthnotes is proud to now offer the new EasyAnswers Touchscreen, an engaging, consumer-friendly resource that leading-edge retailers like Clemens can easily integrate into their stores to provide shoppers with information at the point of decision."
Pricing and availability
The new Healthnotes EasyAnswers Touchscreen is now available for purchase or lease through HNI. Custom colors and branding options are available.
