American-priders rejoice! A new store in Elma, New York is now peddling entirely American-made goods, right down to the product wrappers. The store is appropriately named “Made in America.” Several tour bus companies have even added the store to their tour routes… giving tourists a slice of Americana and a town nobody would ever care about normally.
Shop owner Mark Andol climbs aboard a bus and tells the riders that shopping here is a patriotic act.
“When you walk through them doors, I guarantee when you’re shopping — the homework’s been done — it’s 100 percent made-in-America products. Made in this country by American workers, and the money stays in our economy. So, enjoy yourself,” he says.
Customers pour into the spacious building, which used to be a Ford dealership. American flags and patriotic quotes adorn the walls.
The store hasn’t turned a profit yet, but everyone’s got their fingers crossed.[ via ]
