Time to give thanks.

We’re inspired by author William Faulkner’s quotation: “Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.”

While we’re all getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family, we’d like to take a moment to thank a few important people in our lives. Thanks to our staff, who deliver quality and service every day. Thanks to our community, without your support we’d be nothing. Thanks to our families, for understanding that running a business is a 24/7 commitment.  And thanks to you, our customer and friend. We’re all lucky, blessed and need to share our gratitude every day.

Ease out wrinkles with a steamer or a hang near the shower. Let the garment air overnight before storing.
