Testimonials from shop owners using the Retina theme

The response to this theme has been overwhelmingly positive. Aside from the beautiful aesthetics, our conversion rate and average order value have seen a marked increase. Great Theme!

Retina: The cleanest, sleekest and polished of all themes. Incredibly easy to navigate and not overwhelming. Better than the theme, however, is the customer service from Out of the Sandbox, it’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with the crew there. They're incredibly helpful and their response time to questions is almost immediate. They Rock!

World class support and this theme is incredible for conversions, not to mention schema markup meaning our products see a star rating and higher click thru rate on Google! I highly recommend this theme!

Not only is the Retina theme beautiful and feature-packed with pretty much everything you need to set up a great looking and effective store, but the customer service really puts it over the top. Out of the Sandbox maintains great forums with answers to tons of questions, but if you ever need help customizing and tweaking they're just an email away with expert help and advice.
