Since 1954, Ray's Pharmacy has provided customers with prescription medicine, vaccinations, and trademark service at each location. Their team of expert pharmacists specializes in compounding, which is the practice of formulating customized medicines based on each client’s unique physiology. The full-service pharmacy not only fills prescriptions, but also provides free health information, a variety of immunizations, and home delivery for all medications.
Depending on the location, customers can stop by the gift store to pick up items such as scented candles, greeting cards, and Western–style apparel. An appointment-only gun department also outfits gun racks with high-quality shooters from makers such as Glock, Colt, and Smith & Wesson. Additionally, the Mansfield location houses a Suzy Q’s Soda Fountain & Grill, hearkening back to the days when customers could enjoy delicious soda and banana splits at their local drugstore and quarters still had Chester A. Arthur’s face on them.
Mocha walls drench Amour Nails & Day Spa in a warm and welcoming tone that, perhaps not by coincidence, correlates with a few of the spa’s mani-pedis. For example, both men and women can sink into a cushy pedicure throne and enjoy the Ooh-la-Latte treatment, which hydrates skin with a chocolate-latte bath and a sugar scrub. Nail technicians also indulge hands and feet with a range of other tasty-sounding products, such as milk and honey to moisturize skin and green tea to protect it from free radicals.
While the main floor—dedicated to nailcare—bustles with the sounds of whirling footbaths and chitchatting manicurists, private spa rooms whisk clients into a relaxation oasis where they can obtain a facial, massage, or one of four salt and sugar scrubs and body wraps. The beauty team also conducts waxing treatments in the private rooms to remove hair from bodies.

It's easy to feel pampered inside Glam India. As guests enter the coral-colored salon, aestheticians lead them toward the gold-framed mirrors of individual styling stations where they fix up brows, brighten complexions, and decorate skin. Though the staff also excels at waxing treatments, the salon's signature service is threading—a hypoallergenic hair-removal method that relies on twists of cotton thread to quickly and accurately contour eyebrows and remove fuzz from faces without harming the surrounding skin. The beauty experts can also refine visages with one of their signature herbal facials, which call on everything from chocolate to ancient Ayurvedic serums to create glowing complexions and orphaned blackheads. For a more distinctive aesthetic treatment, the staff also uses henna to add a slight reddish tint to hair or draw complex designs on hands.
