"This fifth location in the Kansas City area is important to our goal of providing a variety of locations that are convenient and close to where people live and work. That matters to our customers, and our extended hours 7 days a week work well with busy lifestyles," said Paul Dickison, Vice President of Marketing for CareSpot.
