Store Spotlight:

With the holidays just around the corner, most of us are starting to think about which gifts to give to the people that matter the most. This week’s Store Spotlight, (NavalTees, LLC) specializes in apparel, accessories, home décor, and many U.S. Navy-themed gifts designed for Navy service-persons, their loved ones, and anyone else who supports the U.S. Military.

Since 1997,, a Disabled Veteran-owned small business founded by Jeff Hobrath Chief USN (Ret) and his wife, Marion, has sold unique Navy-related merchandise.

“Our lead consultant, Jon Ayres, Senior Chief USN, suggested using Miva Merchant in 2001, since the demand for our products was getting to big to handle via phone orders and snail-mail orders,” says Jeff, when asked why he chose Miva Merchant as his company’s ecommerce platform. “Jon did his homework and the overwhelming customer recommendations pointed to Miva Merchant.”

In 2006, Jeff and Marion decided to expand their product offerings to include other military branches, as well as the commercial sector and in 2010, Frank Deaton, Chief USN (Ret) came on board with the company as CEO and moved to a larger facility and increased production to meet the growing product demand.

Currently, carries approximately 1,151 products across multiple categories. Their products have been featured on TV shows, including “One Life To Live” and covered in many news articles and TV news programs.  The staff has also been personally invited to the White House, and the company supports several charitable organizations nationwide.

“I highly recommend Miva Merchant,” adds Jeff. “The application is easy to use, affordable, extremely reliable, and easy to work with and expand. Support is second-to-none.”
