For independent pharmacies, choosing the best prescription drug wholesaler can mean the difference between profit and peril. It’s more difficult today than ever before for independent pharmacies to survive and thrive. Competition from the big box retailers is fierce. Drug prices are constantly rising. And the pressure from DIR fees and pharmacy benefit managers continues to drive margins down.

Partnering with the right prescription drug wholesaler can make a difference by ensuring competitive prices on pharmaceuticals and wholesale pharmacy products. Traditionally, community pharmacies have turned to wholesalers don’t focus on helping independent pharmacies thrive to purchase brand name and generic medicine wholesale. But it’s tough for a community pharmacy to negotiate a competitive pharmaceutical wholesaler contract with a supplier who is more interested in offering steep discounts to their biggest customers – the big box chains.
When looking for a prescription drug wholesaler, more independent pharmacies today are finding better deals – and much better customer service – from an independent pharmacy wholesaler like H. D. Smith.
