For the independent pharmacist, competitive pricing on pharmaceutical supplies is essential to profitability.

When choosing a brand or generic prescription distributor, independents need to be assured that the prices they are quoted on wholesale drugs and pharmaceutical supplies will enable them fully serve their customers while competing effectively with the big box retail chains.
In the past, community pharmacies have often turned to distributors servicing large national chains for pharmaceutical supplies, believing these companies could offer the lowest prices and the best service. Many independent pharmacies today realize this is no longer true.
Community pharmacies today are purchasing pharmaceutical supplies from a wholesaler, like H. D. Smith, who focuses on business solutions and distribution for specifically for independent pharmacies.
