Owning a pharmacy is not easy. Why? Because the industry is at a time where retail is under serious pressure (most retail sales we see are going backwards), rents and nasty landlords are a big problem, competition is increasing, and values in a lot of pharmacies are under pressure.
The choice of what legal entity you use to own your pharmacy or own your partnership interest through is a critical issue and very complex, often with no perfect answers. To go through all the issues in detail that you need to consider would require me to write three books the size of Lord of the Rings, which doesn’t suit the small framework for this blog.
