To all of our Customers & Friends - Unfortunately, due to the recent fires in Sylmar & Granada Hills, we have decided to cancel the Michael Turner Tribute event and 25th Anniversary Fundraiser at our Valley shop today: November 15, 2008
However, we are still open for business and are continuing the BIG SALE for all who come in today. We are contacting all of the special guests and will reschedule this important charity event sometime in December.
