We have built our business on the premise of helping others.
Since our humble beginnings in a New York City dorm room almost 40 years ago, people, not profits, have been our priority.
For weeks now the people of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee have been battling some of the most devastating wildfires they have ever experienced. At Queensboro we have a lot of personal connections to this area and our hearts have been broken as we have witnessed the devastation.
While the fires have mostly subsided, the damage inflicted seems insurmountable. Several lives have been lost, there have been multiple injuries, and hundreds of homes and businesses have been reduced to ash. Many have been left with nothing.
Of course, most of us can not physically be there to dust away the ashes, pick up a hammer, and lend a hand as the rebuilding begins. But that doesn't mean that we can't help! That is why from now until the end of the year, Queensboro will be donating 1% of all sales to help the communities and families affected by the Tennessee wildfires.
During this time of gratitude and giving, while you do your shopping at Queensboro, keep in mind that you too are helping to send relief and support to the great people of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
Your contribution will provide financial relief and help to restore and renew this beautiful part of the country. To say thank you for your help, every order placed through the end of the year will be eligible to include a free Queensboro designed "Tennessee Strong" t-shirt.
We hope that you will participate and wear this t-shirt with pride, knowing that during this season of giving you lent a hand to someone truly in need. Our minimum order is just 4 items which in many cases is less than $50.
To our neighbors across the mountains, stay strong! Tennessee Strong.
