If there is something special your looking for, have a concern about something you purchased, please feel free to contact us in the manner that best suits you. We offer a toll free number, email address, fax and in person consultations. We will let you decide if you like the way you were treated. We pride ourselves on being reasonable, honest and responsible people.
