As an independent pharmacist, selecting the right pharmaceutical wholesaler can help you win more customers, earn more profit and compete more effectively with your biggest competitors – the big box chains.

With profit margins that are thinner than ever, ending the year in black has never been harder in the pharmacy business. Pressure from DIR fees and pharmacy benefit managers only makes things harder, while competition from big box retailers continues to grow stronger. To turn a profit, independent pharmacies need a pharmaceutical products wholesaler who can deliver highly competitive pharmaceutical wholesale prices on generics, brand pharmaceuticals, consumer products, specialty medicines and more.
 
But pricing isn’t everything – your pharmaceutical wholesaler must also offer the kind of customer service that lets you provide your own customers with fast, responsive service. And the most effective pharmaceutical wholesaler will offer value-added programs and services designed to help you compete against much bigger and better-funded pharmacies.
 
For many independent pharmacies today, their pharmaceutical wholesale distributor can no longer provide the competitive pricing, excellent service and additional benefits they need to be competitive. That’s why so many community pharmacies consider H. D. Smith to be the wholesale pharmacy distributor of choice.
 

H. D. Smith: the pharmaceutical wholesaler for independent pharmacies.

 
For more than 60 years, H. D. Smith has been committed to helping community pharmacies succeed. Today, we are the largest independent wholesale pharmacy supplier in the US.
 
As a pharmacy wholesaler, we are one of the top 10 purchasers of generic drugs in the country, enabling us to compete with the Big 3 on generic drug pricing. Our PharmaGen collection is one of the most robust generic portfolios in the market, with retail pricing that is 30% below brand equivalent and profit margins between 40% and 60%.
 
We also provide highly competitive pricing on brand pharmaceuticals, specialty medicines, consumer products, home healthcare products and pharmacy supplies.
 
But even more than our ability to deliver products at great prices, it’s our pharmaceutical wholesaler customer service that truly makes the right pharmaceutical wholesaler for community pharmacies. With the ability to ensure access to products and to resolve issues quickly, we are able to help independents serve their own customers more effectively and to compete with the big box chains.
