Whether you have a large independent pharmacy or a smaller-format store, we have alternatives to our traditional category planograms that can help you make the most of your retail space.

If your store has a small front-end (less than 1,000 sq. ft.), one way you can make the most of your space is with combination planograms. These 4′x54″ planograms were developed specifically for stores with a smaller footprint. Within combo planograms, our analysts select optimal product assortments from a variety of related categories that you may not be able to feature as separate departments. These planograms help you offer a small selection of the most popular products in each of the represented categories.combo planograms

Everyone that receives our TEMPS® Category Manager program can request a combo planogram at any time throughout the year. For smaller stores we offer four different combo planograms: Grooming Needs (a combination of deodorants, shaving & grooming, and oral care categories), First Aid/Foot Care, Feminine Care/Family Planning, and Therapeutic Hair and Skin.

If you have a large-format store (2,000 sq. ft. or larger), we created a Children’s Health planogram, combining children’s cold & allergy, digestive, and pain products so busy moms and caregivers can find all these solutions in one section.

If you’re already a TEMPS client you can request these planograms by indicating which ones you want on Your Store Profile and faxing it back to us, or calling our Client Services department at (800) 888-0889. If you’re not a subscriber and want to learn how you can be, please contact us.
