The objective of this research was to assess the challenges that retail pharmacies faces in its management and operations in Sta. Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. A questionnaire-based cross sectional survey was conducted on thirty registered retail pharmacies in Sta. Maria, Bulacan. The mean of the response for every question was obtained to know the overall view of community pharmacists and the data were grouped by working position and was analyzed using t-test. The community pharmacists agreed that pharmaceutical price war was one of the main obstacles to ethical pharmaceutical practice. Pharmacists agreed on the proposed required certification of all pharmacy assistants in practice and that there was no enough qualified nonpharmacist staff to assist in the duties of the pharmacist. The researchers recommend monitoring prices of pharmaceutical products, to provide skills enhancement program or to include training program of non-pharmacist staff to acquire necessary skills in operating a pharmacy.
