Helping One Another Continues to Pay Off!

As all of us involved with the Buy American Made Campaign have seen that "Helping One Another continues to Pay Off." Today tens-of-millions of Americans are directing more of their spending power on items made and assembled in the United States of America.

For a long time we saw foreign merchandisers expanding their product lines in stores throughout the United States. In the last 10 years we saw more American businesses and merchandisers working to get more American made items back in circulation in local, regional and national stores.

Business owners tell customers that American made items are moving off store shelves at a good pace, and they have seen MORE American made items offered from their suppliers. The bottom line is EVERY business wants to feature the products their customers are requesting so they can remain in business and make a profit so they can keep people employed.

It is very important to take a few extra minutes to look at labels and seek out items made by American workers. It is also important for customers to encourage store owners and workers to seek out more American made products from their suppliers. With all of us working together progress continues to be made.

Since 2012, we have been promoting National Small Business Weekend, the FIRST Friday, Saturday and Sunday of EVERY month. This is another opportunity for each of us to let your local businesses know you support them because they add to the well-being of your local community. It is also an opportunity to encourage them to sell more products made and assembled by American workers.
