Independent Pharmacy Buying Group

Improving the Bottom Line for Our Members


Who We Are

Created in 1996, Independent Pharmacy Buying Group (IPBG) was founded by three pharmacy owners fighting to stay competitive with the rise of large, national chain pharmacies. IPBG combines the volume of independent pharmacies throughout seven states to provide the leverage needed to purchase the lowest cost of goods possible.
