I've been using Pixel union themes for better than 3years now, it's a stellar Theme thats well worth the investment. there's a huge amount of inbuilt versatility that allows tailoring the site to precisely your own design.

Very fast professional support

The theme itself is decent, but we've messaged Pixel Union support 3 times over the last few months for help with specific issues and they just point you to a third party who you have to pay to get some help. Shocking for the price tag of this theme. EDIT: I didn't ask you to improve our Google rankings, please don't lie to downplay my review. Your theme is the #1 issue slowing our site down.

Hi Nathan, We are happy to hear that you are enjoying Empire! Unfortunately, we are not able to help you with optimizing the third party apps you added to your theme. If you are looking to improve your Google rankings, we recommend reaching out to the third party apps, or you developer, to see if this is something they can assist with as this falls outside of theme support. Best, Pixel Union

If your not no designer by nature but still want a nice store then this theme is for you! I had Shopify experts assume that I have a team helping me with my store when they viewed it and to me that is a huge compliment. This theme makes building a store so easy. It has advance features and its so easy to use. Also their dev team are so responsive and talented and fix any issues/concerns you have.

This theme is supported by Pixel Union
