About Us

Inspiring changes to a happier healthier you is what we strive to do here at Clayton Drug. Christopher and Jennifer Clayton own three Clayton Drug locations in Strawberry Point, Sumner, and Elkader, Iowa. All three locations are part of a select network CPESN.  This network is a group of independent pharmacies and pharmacists that provide services such as disease state management, immunizations, compliance counseling and implementation, and one on one pharmacist consultations. All three locations also offer disposable medication packaging with free delivery, mail out services, and walk-in immunizations daily.  

Our Strawberry Point location, located close to Backbone State Park, carries a full line of high end nutraceutical products, and is where Jen Clayton offers integrative health consultation services. At Strawberry Point you will find a beautiful selection of home décor, small furniture pieces, mirrors and clocks. Additionally, we carry Young Living essential oils, Greenleaf candles and much more!   
 
Clayton Drug in Sumner is located right in the heart of Sumner, aka 'the best kept secret in Northeast Iowa'. Our Sumner location also has a gift store, a wide range of over the counter and nutraceutical products, as well has highly trained pharmacists and technician staff ready to help you meet your healthcare goals! You'll find that our pricing is very competitive with even the big box chains, while offering the small town service that you deserve. Ask our Sumner team about our discount prescription pricing today!
 
Elkader pharmacy was added to our group in May of 2018. Previously Moser Pharmacy, we are located within the business district of downtown Elkader. At Clayton Drug in Elkader we constantly strive to provide all our patients with the best possible care. When you get your medications and other healthcare needs with us you are supporting a local team who is dedicated to serving and strengthening our community. If you have questions about medications, healthcare products, any of our services, or if you have suggestions on how we can best serve you and our community, please let us know. Be sure to stop in to Elkader for all of your pharmacy needs but also to shop the gift store!
