Cherokee resident Peggy Hinkhouse and her husband of 18 years, Rich, decided if they ever wanted to start their own business, now was the time. Peg had been employed at Cherokee Hearing Aid Service for over 17 years, including the last 13 as a licensed dispenser of hearing aids, and they decided that opening their own Hearing Center would be their best business option. The Hinkhouse family - Rich, Peg, son Sam (a 9th grader) and daughter Mikki (a 5th grader) - have put in many hours over the last few weeks getting things prepared for the new business, and the day has finally come. Monday May 12, 2008 was the opening day for the new business.
Hinkhouse Hearing plans to have an Open House, including Open House specials, at some point, but no date has been set for that. The hope is that this can be scheduled for sometime in the month of June but, as I said, no specific date has been set at this time.
Hinkhouse will provide the following services for clients - hearing tests; sales and service of hearing aids and other assistive technology; battery sales; ear cleaning; and - a little later - demonstrations of new technology.
