For independent pharmacies looking for the most advantageous contract with a wholesale pharmacy supplier, the choice should be an independent focused wholesale pharmacy distributor. In the past, most independents choose a large wholesale distributor not dedicated to the success of community pharmacies. Their decision seemed reasonable – because big wholesaler could theoretically offer lower prices on wholesale pharmacy products by virtue of their size and market share.

But today, more independents are leaving their big wholesaler in favor of an independent focused wholesale pharmacy supplier. The reason? Other wholesalers are primarily focused on serving their best customers – the big box retail stores. These pharmacies sometimes get the biggest discounts and the best customer service, while independents have a hard time finding competitive pricing or getting the time of day.

For community pharmacies that want competitive pricing and valuable support from their wholesale pharmacy supplier, they are choosing H. D. Smith.
