Congratulations go to Tiffany Barrineau - Satellite Beach, FL, Vicki & Jimmy Flores - Greenacres, FL, Jim Smith & Loretta Banks - North Little Rock, AR, and Chris McArthur - Las Vegas, NV for the opening of their new IslandTime Treasures locations.
“These are really exciting times for our brand, particularly as we expand beyond our tropical shores of Florida into new states. To celebrate, we are creating treasures that have a local flair. For example, in Las Vegas our guests will be able to decorate their treasures with poker chips, dice and other cool bling.” says Lonnie Helgerson, CFE, Co-Founder and President of IslandTime Treasures. “Also, in addition to the over 40 different treasures we currently offer our guests to build, we are creating western-themed treasures such as cowboy boots, belt buckles, and many more. We may be island themed, but we offer treasures that appeal to all geographies!”
