What has been the best day of your business life? One of the best days of my business life was the day we moved into our new location in Viewmont. We more than doubled our selling floor which has allowed us to stock an array of new merchandise. The store is bright and open and easy to shop. Margaret and 1 have so much fun finding nooks and crannies to display all of the new items that come in almost daily! Customers appreciate the easy access to our store and the great parking.
