Front End Overhaul

Ideas and Resources You Can Use to Boost Your Front-End Profits

NCPA senior director of store operations and marketing and wearer of red sneakers Gabe Trahan draws upon his 40+ years of pharmacy management experience to offer merchandising tips and ideas to help you increase business and foot traffic at your pharmacy.

A little bit about Gabe's red sneakers...Picture a well-dressed man wearing red sneakers instead of wing tips. Something in that image does not make sense. Gabe has seen that many of our stores have their very own pair of red sneakers, something that just doesn't fit and takes away from the image of the store. The Front-End Overhaul program will help you find and change your red sneakers to improve your image and ultimately boost your front-end profits.
