NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The SCOOTER Store announced today it has selected an integrated Omnicom team to join its network of agency partners. The company is revamping its roster of agencies to include a new team that provides a deeper understanding of the U.S. healthcare market and proven expertise in branding and direct response.
