Scrub Store Consultants
URA members receive free consultations. This is an excellent opportunity for scrub store owners to ask questions and get answers from a seasoned scrub store owner, Jason Mead. Jason has two brick-and-mortar stores and three online stores. When you visit Scrubstore101.com, go to “Book Online” and select “URA Member Free Consultation”.
Scrubstore101.com is also looking for other scrub store owners who would like to become mentors to newer store owners. Plus, the site will become a knowledge base to include tools, ideas, and strategies from other scrub store owners. If interested in mentorship or submitting products to the knowledge base, let us know at https://scrubstore101.com/contact-us.
This program is at the forefront of URA's member benefits. Annually, every member receives access to coupons of 10% off for purchase orders of first-quality goods at name-brand manufacturers and suppliers. There are coupons for many major manufacturers and suppliers.
URA members now have access to a comprehensive national health insurance program that covers individuals, families, businesses/employees with affordable insurance options on major medical, short-term policies, Medicare/supplements, vision, dental, critical care, life, and supplemental insurance coverage as well as group options with our Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) program. This program, powered by Lighthouse Insurance Group, LLC, allows everyone to have a choice in picking coverage from the leading national carriers while using our team of licensed advisors working with you, concierge-style, to make this process easy for all URA members.
