Nobody knows better than you how to sell OTC products from your pharmacy. After all, you know your environment and your customers better than anyone else. These guidelines from Care are intended to complement that knowledge and help you maximize OTC sales.


Know your Pharmacy

Know which areas of your pharmacy are hot and which are not.

There are hot and cold areas in every pharmacy*. Get to know how customers move around your store. Most people are right handed and tend to look at and take products located on the right.

In the example of a pharmacy shown in the diagram, customers will tend to turn to the left while they are passing through the shop – progressing in an anticlockwise direction.
