What Former Independent Pharmacists Have to Say
About Joining the fred’s Pharmacy Team
Kenny Archer, D.Ph.
“As an independent pharmacy owner, the business aspect of running my pharmacy became too much with all the paper work and government involvement so I decided to sell. I chose fred’s Pharmacy because they offered a great price, they had a great financial record and there was little or no change to the way I operated. I was able to keep my entire staff and continue to work full time as well. I have always been very involved with the community and fred’s Pharmacy has supported my efforts in giving to these causes. Overall, I am very pleased with my experience of selling to fred’s Pharmacy.”

“The acquisition to fred’s Pharmacy went smooth with an acceptable timeline that was agreeable to all involved. I was glad that I was able to retain all of my employees, and they were impressed with the new benefit packages they received. This was a great decision because we kept our team members happy and we have been able to provide the customer service that we built our business on. I think any independent pharmacist should consider selling to fred’s Pharmacy when approaching retirement.”
Tom Assaf, R.Ph.
“At my age, one must start thinking about retirement, and when I decided to sell my pharmacy, fred’s Pharmacy was the perfect solution. They gave me what I felt my business was worth. The team at fred’s Pharmacy was there every step of the way to make sure the transition went smoothly. They are more in tune with people, not like the big chains. fred’s really is a hometown pharmacy.”
“When we decided to sell our pharmacy in Columbus, it was important to find a pharmacy that would keep our values, our commitment to customer service and maintain continuity. We liked how fred’s Pharmacy operates similar to independent pharmacies. They worked more at keeping our pharmacy services as is. Best of all, we were able to transition out of ownership and still stay in Columbus as pharmacists.”
