As an independent pharmacy, the ability to purchase cheap generics can mean the difference between turning a profit and operating in the red.

At a time when margins on pharmaceuticals are thinner than ever, low cost generics represent the highest potential for profit in the pharmacy. Securing the best price from a generic drugs supplier is essential. Many independents make the mistake of sourcing generic medicine wholesale from other distributors who don't primarily serve independent pharmacies. With these major wholesalers, the best prices on cheap generics are available only to their best customers, while others tend to pay considerably more. Community pharmacies who source cheap generics from wholesalers are don't primarily serve independents, are actually helping to subsidize their competition.

When seeking the best deal on cheap generics, savvy independent pharmacy owners turn to a pharmaceutical distributor that is dedicated to providing community pharmacies with better pricing and remarkable customer service: H. D. Smith.
