The guide to selling your community pharmacy by Anne Hutchings
Owning a pharmacy can be a stressful business… selling one can be even more so. Anyone who owns a pharmacy will, at some point, start to think about selling it. This is a huge step and one of the most important a pharmacist is ever likely to make. Since most pharmacists only sell a business once it is something they need to get right first time.
Selling your pharmacy for all it’s worth gives a unique insight into the sales process and its many pitfalls. In this original guide, one of the UK’s leading experts, Anne Hutchings, provides an inside view of how a pharmacy business should be valued, how buyers are found and how a sale price should be agreed.
“An invaluable guide. I wish such a reference had been available when I sold my business. This book will also be of value to those wishing to buy a pharmacy. Having been full circle through this process (twice!), I wish this book had been there to guide me.”
Laurence Tressler, Tressler Pharmacy, Coventry
