HealthSnap.ca (www.HealthSnap.ca), a Canadian online provider of specialty health and lifestyle products, celebrates its two-year anniversary since its web site launch in January 2014. The milestone not only marks the continued progress of HealthSnap.ca, but also of the partnerships it has formed over the years with local businesses. —
"It has been an exciting two years," says Cass Evans, e-commerce manager at HealthSnap.ca. "Growth has been remarkable and we have really found a niche that we will keep serving."
The niche in question is unique, hard-to-find products that the average pharmacy or drug store—even major ones—would not keep on the shelves. Over the past year, HealthSnap.ca has expanded their online catalogue to incorporate over 10,000 such items including vitamins and supplements and products for skin care, infant care, and family planning.
"Constantly adding new products to our inventory allows HealthSnap.ca to stay ahead of the curve, but that is only part of the equation," Evans explains. "Same-day delivery and free shipping have been a core piece of our operations here at HealthSnap.ca and everyone has worked very hard to keep processing times within a single business day."
The same-day delivery is the most popular feature of HealthSnap.ca and the crux of its local partnerships. Products are sent from HealthSnap.ca to one of its 125 pickup locations—independent pharmacies across the GTA—and customers have the option to pick up their items in person, rather than having them delivered to their homes. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement. Customers are able to acquire hard-to-find goods and local pharmacies not only benefit from the foot traffic but are able to use HealthSnap.ca to expand their inventory. This arrangement further provides independent pharmacies with an edge against larger pharmacy chains.
“The main goals for the upcoming year are to continue expanding both the pickup network and the product catalogue,” reveals Evans. “In addition to that, the HealthSnap.ca web site will be enhanced to be more mobile-friendly.”
HealthSnap.ca is a 100% Canadian online retailer based out of Toronto that sells thousands of hard-to-find products that fall into a number of different categories, including Baby & Mom, Beauty & Skin Care, Diet & Fitness, Household, Medicine, Personal Care, Sexual Wellness, and Vitamins & Supplements. Fast, same-day delivery and free shipping to one of over a hundred independent partner pharmacies are some of the many ways HealthSnap.ca caters to customer convenience.
