We Need More Patriotic Shoppers!

It is hard to believe, but another holiday shopping season is here and I urge you to Be A Patriotic American Shopper and support the American workers who are employed by a wide variety of manufacturers, distributors, service providers and retail stores in local neighborhoods and malls who all depend on your purchases to remain in business and keep people employed.

America has always traded with the world, however the imbalance between foreign made and domestic products in the last 30 years has not been in favor of American workers. Today, America no longer produces enough products to satisfy the day-to-day needs of the American people so foreign products not only fill our stores, but in many cases dominate the American marketplace.

The imbalance has shifted so much that Buying American Made products has often been a challenge. However, in the last two years, more of our supporters are finding a growing selection of American made products, so be sure to look for American made where you shop.

For many years, Americans filled their shopping bags with foreign made items without being fully understanding of the plight of American workers. Now that we are informed Being a Patriotic American shopper will add to the success of the Buy American Made Campaign.

Everyone is asked to shop at your local businesses throughout the year and during National Small Business Weekend the First Friday, Saturday and Sunday of EVERY MONTH. For more information visit:
