2011 has drawn to a close, and if you’ll spare us a few moments, we’d like to take this opportunity to reflect on a few of the things for which we are thankful. Ashland, Oregon is a great place to live and operate our small retail store. We have the wonderful Oregon Shakespeare Festival right here in our little town, offering outstanding theater to those of us fortunate enough to live here and to those who travel from near and far to see live theater at its very best. We are delighted to support OSF in all its endeavors.
We’re thankful that although travel isn’t always easy these days, a person can still get halfway around the world in less than a day. That is pretty darn amazing when you think about it. We’re also thankful for the stunning array of fabulous food available from the many cultures of the world. Need I say more?
Finally, and most importantly, we’re thankful for YOU, our customer, who has supported our family owned travel store for 19 years now. We know you can buy luggage, travel friendly clothing and accessories at many different places, and we are grateful you choose Travel Essentials for your travel gear needs. We’ll keep offering high quality merchandise and high quality customer service in 2012, and we’ll hope to see you in our store or on our website again soon. Thank you. We appreciate your support, and wish you all the best in 2012.
