About the Howard Medical Supply Store

Howard Medical Supply Store in Chicago officially began in March of 1978 with an office desk next to my bed and a warehouse located underneath the stairs of a one bedroom apartment on Chicago's near north side. The delivery vehicle was a 1974 brown Chevy Caprice that held 12 cases of underpads fully loaded.

When the Chevy would break down I would hail a taxi on Lincoln Ave., give the driver a 20 dollar bill, 4 cases of water mats and send him on his way to the University of Chicago Medical Center. 1st month sales exceeded $134.

We moved in 1982 to 427 W Erie which at that time was an 8 story warehouse 4 blocks from Chicago's Cabrini Greens where we rented the foyer for $100/month.

In 1989 we moved to our present location on Elston Ave once rumored to be Al Capone's garage.

Since 2000 we have redoubled our efforts to: 

  1. Provide the best customer service in Chicago. 

  2. Present alternate products that allow our customers the opportunity to save money. 

  3. Make timely deliveries. 

  4. Try to make a profit.

The origins of the name Howard Medical are steeped in mystery and a deeply guarded company secret, that I will reveal in depth to anyone e-mailing me with an order for underpads.
