Amazon 'Made Us Stronger'

"When I bought the shop, Amazon was just getting started. We didn't have a computer or any kind of POS. There were always stacks of catalogs to look through and file! Above the Treeline and Edelweiss has significantly changed our inventory management. Having to compete against Amazon has made us stronger by focusing us on what we do best--curation, customer service and a smile. We also figured out that we didn't need the whole pie--just our part--to be profitable and happy."
