Is Your Pharmacy NICE Enough?

Introducing the Best of Pharmacy:

 The NCPA Innovation Center Excellence Awards 2017

The NCPA Innovation Center is looking to spotlight the best of community pharmacy branding and marketing—the innovations and redesigns that have made your promotions more effective and your patients' experiences more rewarding. With eight categories to choose from, tell us what makes your independent pharmacy stand out.

The NCPA Innovation Center is accepting nominations for the following award categories*:

  • Best External Remodel
    From landscaping and paint jobs to entire rebuilds, how did you improve your curb appeal?

  • Best Internal Remodel
    Maybe you moved the pharmacy department. Maybe you created a compression section. Whatever your remodel project, how did it enhance your image and sales?

  • Best End-Cap
    End-caps can be the highest revenue-producing section of your store. Do you have the best of the best?

  • Best Exterior Sign
    Roadside signs draw attention to your store. Have a new one you're proud of? Enter it to see if it's the best of the best.

  • Best Advertising/Marketing Promotion
    'Buy One, Get One' sales are boring. What great promotion did you run that you want to tell everyone else about?

  • Best Social Media Campaign
    Are all of those hours 'wasted' on social media paying off with new customers and more sales? Tell us about it!

  • Best Public Event
    Community pharmacists are great at getting out from behind the counter to participate in local events. Bring us your best story and we may just bring you a NICE Award.

  • Best Customer Convenience Improvement
    Americans love convenience. We take hard processes and make them simpler, such as curbside delivery for patients who have trouble walking into the pharmacy. Do you have a great example of how you've made life easier for your customers?

*Enter in as many categories as you like, but one entry per category, please. The contest honors remodels, promotions, and events completed between July 1, 2016 and Dec. 1, 2017. Deadline for entries is Dec. 1, 2017.

Entry Instructions:

  • Tell us your story about how you've improved your pharmacy.

  • Use data to show how your business was impacted.

  • Confirm the date of the project.

  • Photos are required for all of the categories except the "Public Event" category.

  • Before and after photos are required for the "External Remodel" and "Internal Remodel" categories.

We will recognize the NICE-est entries in the March 2018 issue of America's Pharmacist.
