AAP is a Member-owned cooperative comprised of more than 2,000 independent and community pharmacies.

The history of AAP began in 2009, when two major pharmacy cooperatives – United Drugs of Phoenix, Arizona, and Associated Pharmacies, Inc., of Scottsboro, Alabama – joined forces to form one of America’s largest and most comprehensive independent pharmacy organizations.

Our Board of Directors: real people, real owners

AAP is overseen by a Board of Directors elected from our membership – real independent pharmacy owners who face the same industry challenges you face on a daily basis. Throughout the history of AAP and its subsidiaries, we have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in rebates and dividends and saved our pharmacies millions more in operating and acquisition costs. We’re able to achieve this level of return due not only to our size, but through strong market relationships built upon trust.
