Ruth Thorne and Elyse Bowman – Customer Care 

These girls are the hardworking backbone of our store. They do all the things that we need to give our customers great service. They paint, they clean, they run the computer, they pick the music(!), they help move furniture, they organize, and they execute marketing campaigns. If we have a broken chair to fix or a cabinet to put together, they can do it. The best part is that they do it all with a big smile. Oh, and we love the third musketeer too! Go  Chelsea Smith.
