I.D.A Drug Mart is recognized as a Community Leader through its investment in expanding local news coverage. Thanks to their participation in the Community Leaders Program we are able to enhance areas of content that were underserved in the past. I.D.A Drug Mart proudly supports Rooted and the inspiring stories of the people and places that make us proud to call Sault Ste. Marie home.

I.D.A Drug Mart has been a locally owned business since 1957, and is still operated by the same family! Originally known as Palombo’s Pharmacy on Gore Street, through the loyalty of our customers, we have been able to grow to 4 locations in order to serve Sault Ste. Marie better.

For over 85 years, I.D.A Drug Mart has been a part of Canada. Our pharmacies are united in a shared pledge to be your local community pharmacy of choice! Each of our pharmacies are independently owned and operated by pharmacists who believe in the best possible patient care. Our care for our customers is paramount to our success in Canada, which is why we make it our number one goal when serving our local communities.

In 1932, the Independent Druggists' Alliance (I.D.A.) was first established in Canada. Over the years of our service, our brand has become a trusted name in pharmacy care, and we appreciate the tremendous loyalty from our patients. We are proud to operate over 900 pharmacies from coast to coast. As a truly Canadian business, we appreciate all of the support from our local communities, and our loyal customers.
