Perhaps your class ring came from Herff Jones, you wear clothes made with W. L. Gore & Associates’ waterproof Gore-Tex fabric, admire Herman Miller furniture and enjoy books from W.W. Norton & Company.
Or, maybe you’ve bought culinary supplies from King Arthur Flour, shopped at Publix Super Markets, Hy-Vee or WinCo Foods, and gotten retirement planning advice from Robert W. Baird & Co. or relished a Clif Bar snack and a pair of Dansko shoes from The Walking Company.
