It’s Back-to-School Time

It’s back-to-school time—is your pharmacy prepared? I’m not just talking about having school supplies on hand. Parents may come into your pharmacy with questions about a good children’s vitamin to take, or what you recommend for cough and cold medicines and head lice treatments. Be sure to have answers ready for these questions and be able to recommend them products from your store. In addition, check with local gym teachers and coaches to see what brand of knee, wrist, and ankle braces they would like to see offered in your store. Many prefer “made in the USA” brands. Finally, ask teachers for a list of what local first graders are expected to bring on their first day of school and prepare a kit for sale in your pharmacy.
