Shelly, I've talked with the team at A Closer Look in the past when shopping for a supplier. We're working with Bare Int'l at the time and things are going well.

Thanks for reaching out, however.

Hi Shelly,

I would like to think you for taking the time to reach out and prepare the report for me. However, I have decided to move forward with another company for shops. I would still like the opportunity to meet you and find out what else your company provides. I look forward to hearing from you and thanks again.
