Shopping Online With the Shops at LBH

Is there ever a bad time to shop?

At LifeBridge Health, we think the answer to that question is a resounding “no!” And what is sweeter than shopping in your jammies at home? Yes, Internet shopping has arrived at LBH and we decided to give it a test run.

First, go to www.lifebridgehealth.org and from there you will see the lovely LBH banner scrolling across the top of the page with the words, “The Shops at LBH: Shop flowers and gifts, skin care, supplements and much more!”

Hmmm. Sounds like a good deal already. And you thought there would only be adult diapers on the site. (Not that there’s anything wrong with adult diapers!)

But “The Shops at LBH” offers so much more! Everything from Tae Bo exercise DVDs to cosmetics, to an cookbook on healthy eating for pregnant women, to swimsuit tops. There is even a baby registry for moms who are delivering at Sinai Hospital.

Naturally, there is a full range of health care products including uniforms, equipment such as blood pressure monitors and, OK, adult diapers.

I decided to place an order for some vitamins that I would have to buy anyway. After the usual checkout routine supplying credit card info, I was offered a chance to subscribe to a free newsletter, on topics ranging from healthy diet to alternative medicine to gastrointestinal health. (You can decline the offer.)

The order was placed on a Monday and the vitamins arrived at my Baltimore home on Thursday. It was quick, easy and I didn't have to make a trip out to buy vitamins. So take an electronic stroll around “The Shops at LBH.” No doubt there is something there to catch your fancy.
