They load fine for you perhaps, got not me.
So I can't see the pics, find your address - you lose me as a customer.
If you lost me I"m sure you lost others.
I looked at some of your competitors websites and I don't have the same issues....so I called them not you. Maybe you can afford to lose customers, I can't say.
The fun of google is it can find me all the vendors - and if your site won't work the back button on my browser will take to someone whose site does work. The harder I have to look to find your contact info (and an email link says EMAIL to me, not 'about us' ) and it's "too hard" then I'll go elsewhere. What is "too hard" varies from person to person of course. But you must make it as easy as possible for folks to do business with you or you'll lose some of them.
On my desktop computer I don't bother with html sites - why would I? So if your flash site won't work or takes forever to load or makes me hit ENTER (hey, I already DID that didn't I, when I clicked the link to get ot your site?????? why do you make me work harder than necessary to give you my money??????) I can go elsewhere very easily.
As for flash or not...look at the top websites - NONE are flash. http://www.alexa.com/topsites http://toolbar.netcraft.com/stats/topsites
Umm...if flash was the better way I think google or FB or amazon or others would use it. But they don't....for a very good reason.

On the main page, there is text (words) that place us in northeast Texas just south of Tyler. On the Contact Us page, linked with an email icon from virtually every page in the site, is our full address, email address and phone number.
Images load fine in both Flash and HTML.
Sorry we won't do business.
