Dream comes true for Hal Mykolaishyn who wins award named after his father

Dreams do come true. That was certainly the case for MEDIchair Tri City owner Hal Mykolaishyn whose store was selected as the 2010 Harry Mykolaishyn Best Dressed Store Award in a national competition of more than 70 stores.

The award is presented annually to the MEDIchair franchisee whose overall store layout, design, and presentation, (as seen through the eyes of the customer), best exemplifies MEDIchair's core values of care, knowledge, value and customer service excellence. "Since MEDIchair honored my father's passing in 2005 with the Harry Mykolaishyn Best Dressed Store Award, it has been a dream of mine to win that award," explains Mykolaishyn. That dream came true this year and I couldn't be more proud of that accomplishment." MEDIchair COO Bas van Lankvelt commented, "Hal Mykolaishyn and his team have done an outstanding job of moving to a great new location and converting the space into an inviting retail shopping experience for both customers and community health care professionals. Hal and his team have excelled at presenting a positive MEDIchair image in the community in which they operate. Their overall brand awareness through a magnificent store and showroom, vehicle signage and website presence made them worthy recipients of this award." It wasn't until 2009 that Mykolaishyn got serious about his goal of winning the award. "In 2009, I truly began laying the ground work to win the award. I created a plan to purchase a new building in Port Coquitlam a fresh building that would give me a blank canvas on which to be creative. From there, I drew ideas from former best design store winners, restaurants, elite local businesses and interior design elements I personally appreciated." "When we opened the new store in November 2010, I was confident we had done a good job. The ambience is terrific. It's bright and inviting and has amazing curb appeal. The interior design elements could not have turned out better. The store flows from one home medical equipment category to the next. It's a great space that allows us to demonstrate and provide complete home medical solutions for local residents and community health care professionals."
