All of us are saddened and concerned to have learned about the destruction of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake which has devastated areas of Japan. Many of us and our staff have family and friends who are affected by this tragedy. For the next week, portions of profits from all our locations will be donated back to Japan Earthquake Relief and the Red Cross. For our loyal family of friends and customers who have loved ones throughout Japan, our thoughts and love are with you.
