A Prescription for Caring
Merchandising plays a critical role in helping you grow your front shop sales. It can dramatically impact how your customers feel about your store, from their first glimpse of the exterior to their shopping experience inside.
Our Remedy’sRx merchandising team is available to assist you with planograms and merchandising support to keep your store looking fresh, exciting and appealing. A clean, well merchandised store will entice consumers to shop at your pharmacy, adding strong incremental margin to your bottom line. Planograms Planograms are strategically developed to ensure proper product placement on the shelf to maximize store sales and margin.
Planograms are strategically developed to ensure proper product placement on the shelf to maximize store sales and margin. Planograms are structured off the latest AC Neilson data ensuring no key SKUs or new product innovation is overlooked. Since no two pharmacies are alike, we have multiple planogram sets developed to ensure all pharmacies have a planogram that fits within the linear footage available.
Seasonal Sundry and Confectionary Programs
Full seasonal sundry and confectionery programs (e.g. Christmas, Halloween, Easter) are structured to ensure that both small and large format pharmacies can take advantage of the product selection available and the associated deals. Promotional activity is planned around these programs to solicit consumer awareness and to assist with product sell-through in your pharmacy.
Seasonal Booking Programs
Seasonal booking programs are designed to ensure pharmacies have sufficient inventory on hand to accommodate the increase in demand during specific times of the year. Cough/Cold, Allergy and Sun Care are just a few examples of some of these programs. The booking events consist of a wide selection of products that are seasonally driven, supported by significant buy-in deals with extended dating payment terms. They are a great opportunity for pharmacies to buy against, build section displays, drive overall front shop sales and more importantly, increase margins.

These are the three most commonly asked questions we hear from pharmacy owners. We will help you create a discrete, custom solution to help you capitalize on available opportunities. Here are a few things to consider:
• Selling to a corporate chain is not the only option. In our experience, preserving a legacy is important to many independent owners and they prefer to sell to fellow independent pharmacists.

• We can help identify an appropriate candidate whose enthusiasm and motivation will maintain the business you’ve built over the years and grow it for the future.
