Making Positive Changes in the United States!

The holiday shopping season is our opportunity to support the industries operating in the United States of America. The growing support from America’s consumers has been encouraging businesses located in America to remain in America where the majority of their customers live and our fellow Americans are employed.

Presently, 70% of the American people are employed by small and medium sized businesses, which represent a variety of manufacturing facilities, retail stores in local neighborhoods and in shopping malls. All of America’s businesses depend on us to shop at their place of business to keep employees on the job, pay operational expenses and make a profit to remain in business.

Shopping at local businesses, especially those that offer a reasonable balance of items made in America alongside imported products, is the best way to show your support for American Made.

Our campaign to promote December as “National Small Business Month" has been another positive way for us to show our support for American workers. While you’re out shopping, make it a point to let store clerks know that you support the Buy American Made Campaign and that you make it a point to shop at stores that offer a reasonable selection of American made items.

We all want to see a growing number of American made products available in the United States. However, we find that distributors who supply American stores often bypass American made products because the profit margin on imported items is better for them. As a result of this, an overwhelming amount of imported products are now sold in the United States, which continues to hurt America’s manufacturers and American workers.

As you gather with family and friends at this festive time of year, help promote efforts like December as “National Small Business Month” and invite everyone to support America’s Businesses as we work to restore no less than a 50-50 balance of what is being sold in America’s stores.

Thanks for promoting our efforts. Email your suggestion to:
