I am very impressed by Simon’s eagerness and enthusiasm in seeking deals in a lot of things including strategic materials in this difficult time. A big thank you to Simon.

I’ve been with Buying Essentials for a couple of years now. I have a busy smaller footprint pharmacy and have found the format of what BE offers a real help in buying well without having to deal with reps all the time for best buys. Buying when and what quantity I need with the on- going discount structure on display in the API portal automatically set up . During the last craziness of March/April  2020, Simon was on the front foot with help in sourcing product, hand sanitizer , flu vaccine, and other advice with wholesaler and manufacturer and stock  activity. Advice and help, that as an independent pharmacy, would not be aware of. Having some help from an advocate in certain circumstances at an arms distance from your main wholesaler can be advantageous, while at the same time looking after that wholesalers interest requires someone working in “the back ground” creating relationships etc. Something we all know is not easy when at the coalface of community pharmacy. If you’re thinking of joining the BE group please feel free to call me at any time. I strongly endorse this form of support for independent pharmacy.

Buying Essentials has given my business the access to the great buying deals that are essential to remain competitive in our difficult trading environment. The support from Simon has helped me understand and reinforce strategies that I have implemented. He has an excellent background in retail which is very important in our business. He is readily available and is very attentive to queries regarding all matters. I would thoroughly recommend Buying Essentials as I have used others and have been disappointed with their lack of transparency with buying deals and lack of support.
