Opening a Pharmacy

Opening a Pharmacy

It’s a goal of so many pharmacists – owning your own store. The ways to get there are as varied as the communities you serve. Some pharmacists step immediately into well-established family businesses, some work first in corporate pharmacy, and some buy stores from veteran pharmacists ready to pursue retirement hobbies. And a successful store is often followed by a second pharmacy (or third, or…).

Although these scenarios have unique considerations, questions about finance, real estate, merchandising, and legal requirements top the list. Just like any entrepreneur, you should contact your state’s Small Business Development Center. As creator of the first pharmacy management system, QS/1 is proud to be a resource for pharmacy owners.
