I am loving it so far, Haven't published the store but loved the overall functionality....The freedom of designing my own pages templates, product templates and adding as many blocks, features as I want to product pages, customer accounts etc......Great work!

Great, versatile theme. Customer support is fantastic and set-up is a breeze. Would definitely recommend for stores with a large catalog.

Had an issue with a 3rd party app displaying erroneous code on my homepage. Support was quick to identify the cause and provide a solution.
