Are you thinking of adding another pharmacy?
Whether you are opening your second or your tenth store, they will always be room for improvement. Everything you had to consider when you were a First-Time Owner still applies this time around. Have you reviewed your lease with an expert? How are you going to finance your new store?
You need to consider how the new location is going to impact the process and follow the same steps when vetting it. The team at O’Connell has helped set up stores in malls, plaza, medical building, universities and hospitals—we’re familiar with the many potential issues of opening a new store and how to avoid them!
When you have the opportunity to open another store or pharmacy, it’s your chance to learn from previous experiences. Think about what went well & what went badly last time. What would you change, if you had the opportunity to do it again?
- If opening your first store was hard, you’ll want this to be easier. We’ll sit down with you to discuss past difficulties and find solutions to them.
- If your first store opening went off without a hitch, then you’re lucky! We’ll help you to repeat the process and grow in new ways.
Specialty Services for Your New Pharmacy
In addition, you may be considering one or more of the following specialty services for your new pharmacy location:
- A methadone clinic
- Sterile compounding products
- Injectable products
- Chemotherapy drugs
- Long-term care
- And others
Many of these services will require a clean room or an ante-room that must meet certain OCP regulations. As a result, it’s important to discuss these features (and any other additions) at an early stage of the planning process. The team at O’Connell can help make sure adding them to your pharmacy store is a straight-forward experience.
Whether you’ve worked with us before or you’re looking for a new partner, O’Connell is here to help you do things the right way. Just visit our contact page to get in touch!
