This theme is exactly what we were looking for. It is super versatile, great blog function, cool mega menu, nice filtering, you can customize it in many ways, it's fast and it comes with great support. Even now in the most busy time of the year Pixel union is super quick with their reply and service. When in doubt: just do it.

I had a problem with other app (some translation app), which left code and lock my store, but empire support solve my problem very fast. Great support!

Been using Empire ever since switching to Shopify from Woocommerce 2 years ago. It is a great theme that is feature packed and performant. I would definitely recommend it.

DAY 5 WITHOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE ANSWER! The home page of this template is not mobile-friendly. And the contact page has some issues with text superposing to each other when you fill it (even in the demo). Looks like nobody tried it before! Still waiting for their answer! I'm starting to regret spending $ 180!

Reply from Pixel Union Nov 16, 2020
