What is a Drug Emporium?

What do you think of when you see a Drug Emporium? It is often assumed we are just another Drug Store. You’ll be pleasantly surprised that we are so much more!

Drug Emporium, owned and operated by Gibson Sales, LP,  is a discount retailer providing quality service across Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas since 1985.

The addition of healthy lifestyle focused items in the late 1990’s via Vitamins Plus, has enabled us to focus on being the Local One-Stop Wellness Retailer.

The one-stop-shop that has it all! The place that carries rare, hard-to-find items that you can’t find in large grocery store chains. The store that offers something new you didn’t know you wanted on every single trip. The emporium with a friendly pharmacy, groceries, vitamins, supplements, makeup, special diet health foods, home health, plus so much more.


What’s going on with the different prices on the same items?

Our philosophy is to offer the highest quality brands with a vast selection, all at everyday low prices.

We try to pass on our savings directly to our customers, as seen with varying prices on the same items.  Our Everyday Low Prices save our customers a substantial amount of money on overall purchases at Drug Emporium.

With our business approach, when there is a price increase on new merchandise that we buy, we do not raise the selling price on like merchandise already in stock.  We continue to pass along the savings to our customers which means that you may find different prices on the same merchandise. We recommend to look through all the items to find the best deal.

Other retailers raise the price on existing merchandise when there is a price increase. This is why you will only find one price on the same merchandise with other retailers – unfortunately for the customer of those retailers it is generally marked at the higher price.


Specialties are our Specialty!

We desire to provide a modern product offering and a neighborly feel with helpful customer service, fast checkouts, and assistance in finding the products you desire.

Due to customer relationships, many of our products we stock come through their suggestions or special requests. Let us know of your hard-to-find items because special orders are our specialty.

This is one way we strive to remain different from other retail establishments in the 21st century.  It is our intention to remain customer focused, neighborly, friendly and well informed in order to be the most cost-conscious One-Stop Wellness Retailer!
