What’s in a Name?

 
Our names become our identity. Parents name their children. Children name their pets. Buildings are named after famous people. Street corners are named after veterans or special people in the neighborhood. And some people even change their names!

Many brand names become so popular that the brand name becomes the product! Kleenex for facial tissue, Xerox for photocopiers, Band-Aid for adhesive bandages. Can you think of more?

Well, here at the ATHM, we named our store for the heart of what we are: Textiles, but changed the spelling to reflect the variety of stylish merchandise we have. TexStyles, the store at ATHM.

So come visit TexStyles and win a $25 gift certificate for your next shopping spree!
