If they want to promote ecommerce they should do something about their outrageous shipping rates!!! 🙁

Good luck everyone!

I don’t think we’ll be winning any awards this year but we’re dedicated to improving the online experience. Maybe next year!

Salina

Thanks for the headsup! It would be an awesome prize!

It’s too bad they wouldn’t do us ALL a favour and lower their prices before we all go out of business.
