With recent trends showing availability and quality of both traditional and professional pharmacy services as key factors in patronage of a pharmacy, there is a greater need for understanding types of services customers desire in their community pharmacies. This anthology of research, gleaned from journals published over the past decade, with helpful interpretative comments by Smith and Coons, is the most complete resource available on marketing services.This unique volume provides data from which practicing pharmacists can develop a service programdesigned for its patrons and marketing strategies for promoting those services. Whether chain or independent drug stores, managers above the store level will find practical, relevant marketing hints in this one convenient source. Special topics covered include: defining and classifying patronage factors and motives characterizing consumers as related to pharmacy patronage assessing consumers'attitudes and perceptions concerning pharmacists'roles in counseling patrons on their use of drugs, private consulting with patrons, and prescription price strategizing marketing for special markets, such as elderly in housing communities and long term care facilities The variety of topics covered will interest all involved in the field of pharmacy from graduate and advanced undergraduate students and professors, to marketing and sales specialists, especially managers in the wholesale industry.
