If you wait too long to sell your pharmacy, your options decrease, not increase. We often see a seller come to use in a panic because they are losing money in their pharmacy. We can usually sell these stores (for a lot), but to a smaller potential pool of buyers and under pressure to make a deal quickly.
Therefore, the ideal time to sell the business is when things are going well, so you leave at the top and have power in negotiations with buyers. We understand things change, so if you don’t have a clear plan to fix what is ailing your pharmacy, or if that plan is not working, sell while you can for top dollar before it’s too late.
If you are unsure if it is the right time to sell, call us and for a free, no obligation consultation. Sometimes we tell people that it is not the right time to sell, and the problem is with something else, for example they need to work less hours or terminate a staff member. I had a pharmacy seller call me and wanted to sell. I asked him about his store and the first thing he said was that his girlfriend started working in the store and all the staff hated her. Once he said this to me, he knew what he needed to do, and I didn’t have to say anything else. We help owners sound things out all the time.
