Made in America: The Importance of Shopping “Made in USA”

Made in the USA
Frame USA was also featured on Diane Sawyer’s “Made in America”

Most of you are familiar with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer who began a “Made in America” pledge last year by claiming that if every American spent $3.33 on U.S.-made goods, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs in the country. She urged viewers to pledge to take a look at their yearly purchases and increase the percentage of goods purchased that are made in America.

With the American economy stagnating and unemployment rates ranging in the 8% level, now is the time for all of us to think about what we can do to help. According to Roger Simmermaker, author of “How Americans Can Buy American”, it is a fallacy that most U.S. made products cost more. Sometimes it just takes more research to see what other brands are out there and which retailers are selling them.

Last week my wife and I spent a week rehabbing a unit we own in South Carolina. We were on a tight time schedule (we had one week to finish an entire unit) and had to work fast. When we looked at furniture we didn’t see a lot of American Made Products—in fact most were foreign.  You can’t buy everything American all the time. But what you can do is slide your scale more in favor of buying American. If a consumer achieves even a 50% level of buying American-made products, they would be doing a great service to the Country and all those looking for jobs.

If you boosted the amount of American Made Products that you were buying this year how many jobs would it create in America? Imagine if 335 million people did this……

Get your children involved in this adventure.   It is our job to teach our kids to buy affordable, high quality American made products that are both appealing and safe. Children must learn from a young age the importance that supporting ourselves has on our economy, and really their future. With only one out of every two College graduates finding a job it is time we tried a different approach.

Now… on to selfless promotion and Frameusa.com. Virtually every product in our catalog is made 100% in America. We are legit.   I don’t want to say that someone hasn’t ever snuck us in a product made overseas that we have bought, but for the most part our frames are genuinely American. And better than that, we offer our products at “real” wholesale prices to customers.   We will shop our picture frame prices against any foreign competitor today!

Buy something that is made in the USA and you will be proud of it.   Even better – it may come to you quicker, in whatever quantity you want and probably at a fraction of the cost!
