When it comes to choosing a wholesale distributor, independent pharmacies have a pretty clear choice: wholesale pharmaceuticals distributor not focused in the success of community pharmacies or an independent focused wholesale distributor.
For years, independent pharmacies inevitably chose a wholesale distributor that simply don’t have the best interest in mind for independent pharmacies. These mega-suppliers offered what seemed like the lowest prices and decent customer service. But with the rise of the big box retail pharmacies, independent pharmacies can no longer expect lowest prices or the best service – steep discounts and responsive service are now reserved for the big box chains. And community pharmacies are even charged higher prices to help make up for the discounts provided to their competitors.
Today, more independent pharmacies are turning away from their current supplier and looking to an independent wholesale distributor like H. D. Smith for competitive prices on wholesale prescription drugs and superior pharmaceutical wholesaler customer service.
H. D. Smith: one of the largest independent focused wholesale distributor in the United States.
With more than 5800 accounts nationwide – essentially one in every six community pharmacies – H. D. Smith is the number one independent full-line wholesale distributor in the country. And it’s no wonder – we’ve been focused on serving the needs of community pharmacies for more than 60 years, providing highly competitive prices on brand and generic pharmaceuticals as well as consumer products, home healthcare goods, specialty medicines and pharmacy supplies.
