Here is what TopsOnline customers are saying...

Hello to everyone at "Tops", Please let me say right now: YOU ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!! SO HONEST, & CONSIDERATE, I'll not forget this, or you! As you probably already know is that most people/dealers might not have been so terrific. They might have simply taken my money, sent me the wrong item, & said "so long & too bad". I have had this happen before! I truly am a little shocked! Thanks again for everything! Sincerely, Pam
