NACDS’ Industry Profile finds that front-end sales contribute significantly to overall sales

BY Antoinette Alexander

ALEXANDRIA, Va. With the release of its 2007 Chain Pharmacy Industry Profile, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores announced that front-end merchandise is contributing significantly to the overall sales of the industry.

While prescription drugs continue to be the largest category of community pharmacy industry sales, front-end merchandise contributed a substantial portion of total sales. Traditional chain drug store sales totaled $145 billion in 2006, with front-end sales totaling nearly $42 billion, or 29 percent.

OTC medications comprised 6.1 percent of front-end merchandise sales in traditional chain drug stores, as many products that were once prescription-only are now available over the counter, marking a shift from third-party payers to consumers and returning the pricing power to the retailer. This was followed by groceries/consumables at 5.2 percent, general merchandise at 4.9 percent, toiletries at 4.2 percent, non-edible consumables at 3.3 percent, packaged alcohol at 1.5 percent and vitamins/minerals at 1.2 percent.
