Building partnerships to ensure long term success
Patient Engagement Platforms
One of the primary goals of the Affiliated Pharmacy Program is to strengthen independent pharmacies in ways that traditional buying groups simply do not have the capabilities of doing. By combining the tools, innovation and operational knowhow of Thrifty White Pharmacy with our multiple technology partners we are equipped to help you drive patient adherence, identify revenue generating clinical opportunities and participate in proprietary revenue generating Payor and Pharma Programs specific to Thrifty White and our Affiliated Pharmacy Partners.
Central Ordering Technology
Thrifty White has relationships with multiple supplier partners along with a proprietary generic warehouse where we distribute 70% of the generic we dispense to our corporate, affiliate and industry partners across the country. We have partnered with Emerlyn Technology and implemented their SureCost Central Ordering System to streamline the ordering and receiving process while ensuring that our Affiliate Partners are receiving the best priced item available across all of our supplier and vendor partners. Managing your everyday cost of goods has never been so simple.

What Our Partners Are Saying
"Our pharmacy has had significant benefits from becoming an affiliated pharmacy with Thrifty White. We have seen noticeable increases to our bottom line. They also provide great customer service to assist with a wide variety of issues and concerns." Brad, Wisconsin
"As independent pharmacy, we have to be able to get the best possible drug prices. With Thrifty White, that is exactly what you get. They take the time to listen to their affiliates and try to meet our needs. They are very responsive to questions and concerns. I feel like they know me and want my store to succeed just as one of their own." Jennifer, Virginia
"The bottom line is Thrifty doesn’t hold YOUR money like many of the wholesalers do, giving them back to you as “rebates”. It is your money not the wholesalers. Staying independent is important to us. Our affiliation with Thrifty White allows us to have the buying power of a large chain, receive discounts upfront, and get the most competitive cost on our medications. This intern allows us to pass those saving on to our customers." Jason, Illinois
"The personal service provided by Thrifty White is the same personal service we provide to our patients on a daily basis. It is refreshing to consistently deal with someone who knows you by name. Wes, Iowa
"Becoming a Thrifty White Affiliate has had an immense impact on reducing our cost of goods, and increasing our profitability over the past several years. Since Bremo Pharmacies and Thrifty White are very likeminded in our goals and vision for the profession of pharmacy, Thrifty White frequently rolls out value added services that are very relevant and timely to advancing our practice. As an added bonus, we enjoy group discounts on subscriptions like Clinical Pharmacology and the Pharmacists Letter. I also really like that we were able to maintain our established brand identity of Bremo Pharmacies, and join Thrifty White. It has been a great partnership for us in so many ways. Catherine, Virginia
