Scott, Thank you for your message and happy holidays to you. Yes, I know it would be a challenge to physically come to the store; but know that you can always purchase products on the store's website.

Oh, what a stroll into the front door of the Visibility Store would do right now! But it's a tall commute for me these days, living as I now do in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At the risk of posting inappropriately in this aether, I'd like to wish all my CVI friends the compliments of the season and a happy and prosperous New Year!
