What Makes Discount Drug Mart & Food Fair Unique for Shopping in Galion?

Discount Drug Mart & Food Fair is one Galion store that always surprises me. I think of it as a pharmacy because of its name, but it's more like a mini department store with a pharmacy in the corner.

Discount Drug Mart & Food Fair

The store's motto is that they're "more than just a drug store" - and they really do have so much more than a traditional drug store. Most of their prices are fairly competitive, too.

For example of price comparison, my dog's favorite canned food is two cents higher at Discount Drug Mart compared to buying it at Walmart, but when I add in the cost to drive to the next town, it becomes much cheaper for me to get it at Discount Drug Mart unless I'm in Bucyrus or Ontario for something else anyway. 

Their departments include:
  1. Automotive where you can get some basic car maintenance supplies and some unexpected car-related items.
  2. Beverages where the selection includes sodas, teas, juices, milk and alcoholic beverages.
  3. Cosmetics and Beauty Products where the selection includes makeup, skin care, hair care and other grooming supplies.
  4. Dairy Case where items like cheeses, butter, milk and eggs are available.
  5. Deli offers fresh cut lunch meats, cheeses, and side dishes like pickled eggs and coleslaw. 
  6. Greeting Cards and small gifts like calendars and chocolates plus gift wrapping supplies are available.
  7. Groceries include a pretty much anything most people need to make a basic, or even complex meal. Things like pasta, sauces, bread and cereals are available.
  8. Hardware offerings include a lot of smaller items for do-it-yourself enthusiasts. For example, I needed a hook for my chicken coop door one night when mine broke. The other hardware store in town was closed because it was later in the evening, and Discount Drug Mart had the exact kind of hook I needed - plus - it was under a dollar. 
  9. Health Needs covers pretty much all the traditional pharmacy-type goods. The selection is great. I have found the staff rarely knows what I'm asking for if I ask for something by its generic name, but if I know the brand, they lead me right to what I need. 
  10. Household Supplies like toilet paper, dish soap, and cleaning products are available. 
  11. Meat - The meat counter isn't very big, but there is a good selection given the small space, and every time I have picked up meat at Discount Drug Mart and Food Fair in Galion, the quality has been exceptional. 
These 11 departments are really just a brief summary of the items available at Discount Drug Mart & Food Fair. They also have items as varied as coffee makers, electric skillets and videos available to rent. 

Discount Drug Mart and Food Fair is located at 739 Carter Drive in Galion, Ohio. The pharmacy has a drive-up window for people who prefer to stay in their vehicles. Arby's is across the drive, plus East of Chicago Pizza and Goodwill are located in the same section of strip mall as Discount Drug Mart & Food Fair.
