EDITOR'S NOTE:

KUNR became aware of certain issues regarding the company's business practices after this story originally aired. In addition, the social media copy used to direct readers to our website was worded in a way that seemed promotional to many of our followers. This post was not meant to be an endorsement of the company in any way. It was meant as a profile of what seemed to be an interesting business -- similar to other profiles KUNR has aired as part of its collaboration with the Northern Nevada Business View. KUNR will be working in the coming days on a follow-up piece.
