Absolutely incredible. I was really struggling finding the perfect theme for my large inventory that would also allow me to be creative with the look and feel of my website and this Empire theme really resolved those issues. Also the staff at pixel union are amazing! They will help you with whatever problem or questions you may have very quickly. I am very satisfied, to say the least.
