Each pharmacy is different, different patient base, different neighborhood, all different sizes, and shapes. What may be great for a 3,000 sq. foot store is unusable for a smaller apothecary. This session will cover the basics of front end for a variety of sizes, what makes sense, and how to use information from your neighborhood to create a compelling product mix that sets you apart. It will also focus on inventory management pearls that teach you how to keep the right product mix, at the right price specifically for your pharmacy business and its patients.
