Pharmacy Owners Alliance

David Mayper, Executive Director

Pharmacy Owners Alliance (POA) was originally formed as Pharmacy Franchisees & Owners Association (PFOA) in 2004 when a group of 37 Medicine Shoppe franchise owners organized to represent its members’ interest in franchise issues. The not-for-profit association has evolved and grown to include over 550 member stores including franchisees, former franchisees and independent pharmacies in 34 states.

POA provides in depth analysis of each member’s current purchase patterns and offers advice on the best decisions for purchasing and rebates. We employ an experienced Generics Specialist to help our members optimize their purchase and rebate opportunities. POA will help review other facets of your business including supplies, data mining, systems, security acquisition, transition and more.

By utilizing programs and services through our approved affiliate vendors, POA’s primary focus is to improve members’ opportunities to succeed in today’s business and healthcare environment. We have access to multiple purchasing options including primary wholesalers, secondary warehouses, PSAO choices, supply, profit building and other programs and services.

POA’s mission statement is “To preserve, protect and preserve the interests of pharmacy owners”
