InnerScope deploys Automated Self-Check Hearing Screening Kiosks in Food City Pharmacies
ROSEVILLE, Calif., Nov. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — InnerScope Hearing Technologies Inc. (OTC: INND) (“InnerScope”), an emerging and disruptive leader in the Direct-to-Consumer Hearing Technology space, is pleased to announce today its partnership with K-VA-T Food Stores, Inc. Food City Pharmacy (“Food City”), a member of Topco Associates, a member-owned cooperative, to deploy a hybrid shopping and hearing health awareness experience by offering Free Hearing Screenings with InnerScope’s automated self-check hearing screening kiosk (“Hearing Kiosks”) located in the pharmacy section of the Food City stores.
The Hearing Kiosks were deployed mid-October in three Food City Pharmacy locations:
- Food City Pharmacy #823, 151 Cook St., Abingdon, VA 24210
- Food City Pharmacy #605, 1205 N. Eastman Rd., Kingsport, TN 37664

InnerScope and Food City plan to add additional kiosks at strategic locations. Food City Pharmacy also plans to offer InnerScope hearing aids and other hearing health-related products in stores and online in the near future. However, until the launch of InnerScope’s Hearing Products with Food City for its in-store and online Hearing Products, Food City customers now go directly to http://foodcity.myheariq.com for exclusive discounts offered to purchase Hearing Products and have them shipped directly to their home.
“We’re proud to partner with InnerScope Hearing Technologies to offer their hearing screening kiosks and hearing health-related products to our loyal Food City Pharmacy customers,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. “We understand the importance of maintaining proper hearing health and look forward to adding a new hearing health category that will provide our customers with more affordable choices for their hearing health needs through in-store and online offerings of InnerScope’s hearing products.”
Matthew Moore, president and CEO of InnerScope, also stated, “InnerScope is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring hearing solutions and hearing health awareness to Food City’s loyal customers. InnerScope will continue to deploy the Hearing Kiosks in strategic Food City pharmacies to help promote better hearing health in more communities. We believe the first step in better hearing healthcare is giving the public free and convenient access to quickly self-check their hearing and provide affordable direct-to-consumer hearing solutions when needed. The Hearing Kiosks provide a free, one-of-a-kind service to help the 48 million Americans who have hearing loss. Currently, InnerScope is in a national rollout and has Hearing Kiosks conveniently located in five states with some of the nation’s largest retailers.”
