Costume Holiday House's inventory of wigs, makeup, suits, and party supplies enables costume changes ranging from spooky to comical. Customers can dress themselves as everything from pop-culture icons to terrifying specters and macabre forms, and an ample supply of wigs and accessories form the basis of inventive costumes that don’t require full-body suits or rubber masks. In addition to wearable Halloween goods, the shop also sells fog machines and animated props that set the stage for monster mashes and haunted houses. Costume Holiday House accommodates dress-up even in the Halloween off-season, with theater costume rentals for schools and community plays, or Second Skin colored bodysuits for showing team spirit at a baseball game or camouflaging into the green-screen background at local commercial shoots.
Owner Kath L. Heim enhances hands and feet by way of scrubs, soaks, and polishes that call on the beautifying powers of her exclusive line of Sea of Softness (SOS) products. The spa pedicure, which can treat feet weary from pacing on a floor covered in sandpaper, administers a relaxing mineral soak, a callus filing, an SOS sea-salt rub, an SOS Moisture Whip lotioning, a hot-towel treatment, and a foot massage with hot-rock and reflexology techniques. The ankle anchor pampering concludes with a technicolor toenail polish in the shade of your choice.
On the shelves and display racks at Tala's, handbags from Brazil stand a few feet from mandala earrings and ornate hookahs. Around the shop, curated selections of handmade products stand ready to be inspected and taken home. Tala's also follows fair-trade practices, aiming to benefit the far-flung makers of its clothing and accessories.

With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an onsite optometrist, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
