Guests will be able to touch, feel, experience and see the details of each product via tester stations.  Interactive tablets will be available to tell each brand's story using Augmented Reality. The store will include a light spa that will provide services including facials, waxing and skin consultations. Additionally, there will be a licensed Esthetician on every shift and all employees will receive high level training, ensuring they are knowledgeable on all products carried in the store, giving the best customer service. In addition to carrying a diverse range of skincare brands, ILERA Apothecary’s highly trained and educated staff will be able to help customers select a regimen that is best for them.

ILERA Apothecary’s flagship store will have a full technological integration, carrying a diverse range of high-quality products from around the world.
