I have been a Gloria Duchin customer for many years and have even met several of the employees. I have been giving out their pewter Christmas Ornaments forever. I used to purchase them for a major retailer but they switched to a Chinese vendor so I contacted Duchin directly. I have been to their factory in E Providence a number of times. Only one time about 4 years ago I had a problem and when I contacted them they fixed it so fast that it felt like they were sitting out in front of my house when they heard about the issue. Gloria D runs a tight ship and is a fabulous American business and employer of local help. I hope this business is around for at least the rest of my life. I will always support them and their products!
