Manage Your Pharmacy From Anywhere

Posted by Mike Gross on Thu, Jun 29, 2017 @ 07:00 AM

As a pharmacy owner, you work hard, and deservedly, need to take a vacation once and a while.  Vacations are necessary, to recharge, spend time with friends and family, relax and unwind.  At RMS, we believe this whole heartedly.  Work/life balance is part of our culture, and it always has, since we started nearly 19 years ago.  We allow our employees to take up to 6 week's vacation per year, paid time off for volunteerism, and try to avoid working our employees more than 40 hrs/week.

Unfortunately, as an owner or manager of a pharmacy, this isn't always possible, and we realize that.  With summer vacations coming up, how do you take time off, but still keep an eye on the business?  We have the solution for you.

Pharmacies: Things you Need to do Now Promote Small Business Saturday - Nov. 26

Posted by Mike Gross on Mon, Nov 14, 2016 @ 08:44 AM

In under 2 weeks, American Express is once again promoting Small Business Saturday.  Why is this important to you?  Last year, retailers saw 95 million shoppers on Small Business Saturday.  $14.3 Billion is spent on Small Business Saturday.  You're going to be open anyway, so why not promote it and get your piece of the action?

How? Spread the word in your community.  Run some specials.  Merchandise some impulse items at your point-of-sale counter.  Display holiday gift items on your end-cap displays.
