First time pharmacy buyers must be careful when buying a pharmacy.
An ill-advised pharmacy purchaser may find himself purchasing a headache, and a prepared pharmacy purchaser may find herself getting a better deal than originally anticipated.
The first 2 major questions to answer before beginning the process is to determine the type of pharmacy to purchase and the way you intend to purchase it.
Laws of Interest
Audit the pharmacy
Some recommended clauses
Deal Exhaustion is a real thing!!

Vaxigo is an innovative Vaccination Management System leveraging self-service applications to transform the delivery of vaccines for both patients and providers.

Patients can build, keep, and share their personal vaccination record in a secure platform.
Vaxigo delivers an interoperable solution for patients, physicians, pharmacists, and nurses to digitally collaborate. This aids in the reduction of over-vaccinations and helps reduce vaccine-preventable diseases.

Talking with Jim Springer, VP South Region, about the importance of preserving and supporting pharmacy ownership and the impact on community health.
Part One of our Three Part Series with RxOwnership
Ensuring the smooth transfer of pharmacy ownership Pharmacy ownership transfer has never been more complex. With that in mind, RxOwnership® was created with one purpose: to help pharmacy professionals with the sale, purchase or transfer of independent pharmacies.
RxOwnership brings together the unmatched expertise of McKesson with the dedication of our ownership advisors to support the needs of current and future pharmacy owners. Whether you’re looking to sell a chain of pharmacies that’s been in your family for generations, or purchase your very first pharmacy business, RxOwnership is the ultimate resource for everything from planning to staffing.
How and why we started In 2007, we discovered that many of our long-time customers and prospective owners had few tools or resources to help them get answers they could trust when they were ready to buy, start or sell a pharmacy. Since then, the RxOwnership program has recruited a skilled team of ownership advisors to manage the growing demand for RxOwnership services on a regional level.
Today, the team works closely with their customers and McKesson Field Sales, Marketing, Analytics and Finance to help with nearly every aspect of buying or selling a pharmacy. Since the start of the program, the RxOwnership team has helped more than 4,000 pharmacy owners through the pharmacy transition/ownership process.
No-fee, experienced advising for every phase of your pharmacy career There is no service quite like RxOwnership. We’re not a broker. Instead, we are here to share our industry expertise and facilitate your ownership goals. We never charge a fee and there are no obligations or contracts to sign.

Doc-JW & Dr. Shaw discuss the complexities of their favorite patients.
Customer: *walks straight up to the counter* “Hi. I can’t find your stamps.”
Me: “Uh, sorry, ma’am; we don’t sell stamps here.”
Customer: *immediately becomes frustrated* “What kind of post office doesn’t sell stamps!?”
Me: *indicates to medications surrounding the entire counter* “This is a pharmacy. The post office is just down the hall.”
(She then stormed out the door as though we had offended her.)
Me: “Good evening, and thank you for calling [Big Name Pharmacy]. How can I help you?
Customer: “I need to identify a pill.”
Me: “Absolutely. Can you give me a description?”
Customer: “It’s a yellow, round pill with an ‘A’ on it. It’s pretty dirty, though.”
Me: “Oh, I really wouldn’t take any medication that appears damaged or contaminated.”
Customer: “No, it’s okay. I found it on the ground outside.”
Me: *professionalism waning* “Uh… what? You found it where?”
Customer: “I found it on the… the street just now, and I want to make sure it’s okay to take.”
Me: *professionalism out the window* “Do you usually eat random s*** off the street?!”
Customer: *hangs up*
