Located inside the Lamar Bathhouse lobby at 515 Central Avenue, the Bathhouse Row Emporium will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except Christmas, New Years and Thanksgiving holidays. This is the park’s new store, replacing the former bookstore at the Fordyce Bathhouse. Visitors to the new store will be able to marvel at the Lamar Bathhouse lobby and find special holiday gifts for family and friends.
The Emporium will feature special, one of a kind items not sold elsewhere. This includes magnolia-scented soap and lotion that are made with Hot Springs thermal water and produced in the park. You will also find coffee, tea and hot chocolate made with the thermal water, and a place to sit down and relax.
The Bathhouse Row Emporium is managed and operated by Eastern National, the park’s cooperating association. Eastern National is a not-for-profit business that donates its proceeds to Hot Springs National Park and other National Park Service sites to support interpretation and education programs and projects.
