Community pharmacies are continually facing new challenges – from an ever-evolving healthcare landscape to rising drug prices and competition from the big retail pharmacies. Sales from generics can be a strong profit source – but only when these drugs can be sourced at competitive prices.

For the independent pharmacy, low-cost generics can be the key to achieving profitability.
Price is important, but it’s not the only factor to consider when choosing a generic drug distributor. Consulting and other business services, along with the lowest priced generics are key features of certain distributers who focus on the success of independent pharmacies.
For the best prices on low-cost generics, many independent pharmacies today are turning to the generic drug supplier H. D. Smith, the largest independent pharmaceutical wholesale distributor in the United States. With H. D. Smith, independents not only get great prices on cheap generics, but responsive customer service that far surpasses the offerings of the Big 3 distributors.
