It's clean, simple, and minimalist, and with a few apps, we made it better than what a custom site would have been. Within three days of customizing the site, it was live. It is a great theme and the people behind it are amazing.

Having used this theme since inception, every step of the way and every request we have had has been answered and solved with minimal fuss.. The guys at Pixel Union really do care about solving problems and continuing to update and improve the theme.

I have been using the Empire theme for a few years now and am very happy with it! They keep the theme updated often to exploit the latest features in shopify. One of the best new features is the inventory tracking and ability to show "In Stock". This theme is highly customizable and seems to function fast. I highly recommend this theme!
