Monday 2017.01.16 – Morning hours cancelled

Morning hours cancelled: Due to inclement weather, we will be closed on Monday morning. It is very slick outside, and we certainly don’t want anyone in a dangerous situation on the road.

Thank you very much for understanding, and we hope to open the doors in the afternoon assuming that it is safe for everyone. We apologize for any inconvenience. As a reminder, please check our Instagram feed or Facebook page for further updates (links to both are in the right sidebar of this page under “Follow Testify”).
