Always had great support from Pixel Union whenever I've needed a niggle fixed. It's usually something I've done! I've found Empire to be a great theme. We have around 350 products with nearly 4K variants so we need something robust to cope with a good menu system to make is easy for our customers to find what they are looking for. Very happy!

I purchased this theme for my business and I love all the functions they provide on this theme. I needed to customized couple of functions and the super amazing customer service team saved my life. Their customer service is kind, fast and super detailed so even if you are not familiar with the coding, you don't need to worry. I am 100% satisfied with the Empire theme and their customer service.
