- NCPA's Web site features a Pharmacy Ownership & Management section at www.buy-sellapharmacy.com) features pharmacies currently on the block, including a separate link to pharmacies for sale through NCPA's IPMS. The site also features articles and information about various aspects of buying or selling a pharmacy, including whether pharmacy ownership is right for you, financing the deal, and why owners need to have an exit strategy.
