John Carter was all smiles when he received his hearing aid batteries through Beltone's drive-thru service.

Beltone Hearing providing free batteries due to Coronavirus

MADISON – At this critical time, three Beltone Hearing Centers in North Alabama are offering their assistance.

The company will provide free batteries for hearing aids through the Beltone Foundation. There are three different stores in our area – Madison, Huntsville and Scottsboro.

“We have implemented a curbside service, so instead of walking in the building and signing in, you can just stay in your vehicle, honk the horn or call in. We will come out to your vehicle and will service your hearing instruments and provide the care that’s needed,” said Robin Watson, who along with her husband Zach own the Beltone stores in this area. “We are assuring people private appointments with only Zach and wearing gloves and mask by calling for appointment at 256-722-5299 or call 1-800-BELTONE.

Those interested can also have free batteries mailed directly to their homes. Beltone will do the free batteries to anyone. It’s not exclusive for a Beltone hearing aid wearer.

Watson said she has had some positive feedback from people thankful they are still open.
“We even had a lady in the other day. She said I’m Thankful y’all are open. I really need to hear the news,” Watson said. “Another sweet patient came in for her hearing aid cleaning and told us she couldn’t find toilet paper. So we were happy to give her some.”

About Beltone
Since 1940 Beltone has been a trusted company helping people hear well. Local Beltone owners, Zach and Robin Watson, opened their third location, an office in Madison (151 Hughes Road), last year.

Zach began his career as a state of Alabama licensed hearing aid practitioner with Beltone in 2002 for Hal and Linda Hames. He started out working in their Decatur and Florence offices.

In 2004 Zach and his family moved from Florence to Madison so he no longer had to commute.  He managed the Huntsville Beltone office and a new office in Scottsboro once a week.

In 2007, Zach and his wife purchased the Madison and Jackson County territories, and he became board certified in hearing instrument sciences.

The Watson’s motto in their offices is to always provide a warm welcome with a friendly smile.  “We strive to provide a caring and family style atmosphere,” said Robin Watson. “We are proud to continue the tradition of Beltone being founded as a family business.”
