The Back Space launches Central Florida test market to deliver affordable spinal health and wellness services

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAC Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMAC) (“IMAC” or the “Company”) today announced that the Orlando metro area will serve as a test market for The Back Space. The Back Space retail healthcare centers specialize in chiropractic and spinal care services within Walmart stores.

“To start, we are excited to launch The Back Space in the dynamic and business-friendly markets of Nashville and Orlando as part of our pilot program. Adding a strategic location in St. Louis is another aspect of the pilot that we expect to be resourceful,” commented Jeffrey Ervin, Chief Executive Officer of IMAC.

“We have learned a tremendous amount thus far from our pilot program in constructing and opening The Back Space locations within select Walmart locations and are very excited about the challenges overcome to launch this exciting new business segment. We are approaching completion of nine of the ten pilot stores with one store delayed due to permitting. The average size of the Back Space is 707 square feet with an average cost of $78,600 per store to open, inclusive of design, construction, equipment, and furnishings. We anticipate the ability to value engineer future store construction to save costs and time on future buildouts.

“I am proud of our exceptional team that delivered The Back Space openings despite supply chain challenges and limited contractor availability for our construction projects. While we benefit from the consistent layout for storefronts, permits and approvals have multiple checkpoints, which is where we suffered our longest delays. Although delays have been frustrating, we are pleased that our average buildout costs have come in below our original projections. We expect to open the remaining pilot stores over the next few weeks. For the completed and nearly complete stores, the timeline from site selection to opening day has a range between 152 and 218 days,” Mr. Ervin concluded.

IMAC’s The Back Space offers walk-in and appointment-based spinal health and wellness services priced at $25 per treatment, with memberships available for $65 per month that are valid at any The Back Space location. More information can be found at www.back.co.
