It has been 35 years here at DD so here is a little story on how it all BEGAN. Gary and Cheryl started off in a kiosk (pictured above) in Maximo Mall in 1984! Look at how far we've come. With a small GI Bill and no knowledge of how to charge someone sales tax (shopping on base had its perks), Gary invested all he had into his business. The Vietnam vet, Tom, who owned the t-shirt airbrushing kiosk next to Gary, showed him how to make the basic sales transactions and from there, Gary worked his tail off to make his business work. As fate would have it, Tom and his wife visited our new Sundial store for the first time just this week! What a pleasure it was to reconnect with someone who had such an influence on Gary's beginnings. Here we are, 35 years later, in Gary and Cheryl's dream store and it's all thanks to a combination of faith, hard work, sleepless nights, and moments with people like Tom who help along the way. So let us take this opportunity to thank YOU for your support and the role you've played in Diamonds Direct's success as we celebrate the ambition and dedication of a couple of kids from Miami in a kiosk.
