"I can honestly say that Shaffer was one of the easiest and most professional vendors we dealt with in planning our new facility and we are very proud of how the arcade turned out and equally as pleased with the resultant business. Shaffer has earned our confidence early and continue to earn it every day of our operation. We look at Shaffer as an extension of our team here at Edison’s."
