It is no secret that imported holiday gifts may not arrive to make it under the Christmas tree this year. Even if you ordered American-made, there is still no guarantee with the recent domestic supply chain issues.
The American Trucking Association (ATA) estimates a shortage of nearly 80,000 truck drivers alone this year – a figure that could rise to 160,000 in the next 10 years.
The Wall Street Journal featured the 150-year-old Fiesta Tableware Co (formerly Homer Laughlin China Co.) on November 27, 2021, and detailed how the American-owned company needs more workers to keep up with the “Fiestaware is cool again” high demand.
Even with the advantage of being a U.S.-based manufacturer, staffing shortages and obtaining enough corrugated cardboard for shipping are problem areas.
Fortunately for Fiesta, retailers that typically rely on imports have to diversify with American-made options, which has helped Fiesta Tableware increase sales. Online sales alone have increased over 100% in the last year and a half.
If you are looking for ways to look your best this holiday season and beyond, then check out American-owned, American-made White Dress Shirts at www.whitedressshirts.com.
I just received my order of two shirts (one white, one blue) and the fit and feel are fantastic. The exact size I bought at a Men’s Wearhouse years ago fits much better from White Dress Shirts. And the feeling you get knowing that you are wearing quality American-made products makes it even better.
Don’t waste your time at Men’s Wearhouse. I’m sure that company stopped carrying American-made shirts shortly after I bought mine, and it took quite a long time to locate them.
White Dress Shirts has quite a few styles on clearance right now, so you can get an even better price than expected. But I doubt you can get similar quality at a better price. The only way to get a better price is to import one cheaper, but then you’ll just be stuck with a cheap import.
There doesn’t appear to be any supply-chain issues with White Dress Shirts. My order arrived in less than a week. Very impressive.
Made in America Store founder Mark Andol has ensured his company has stayed at least one step ahead of the supply-chain issue. Mark made sure he front-ended many items (including toys and games) months ago, so it’s doubtful you’ll come up empty-handed when you shop in-store or online at the nation’s largest retailer of 100% U.S.-made products.
At the Made in America Store, 100% U.S.-made means zero imported parts and zero foreign content, including thread, plastic, steel, and packaging materials. Mark Andol only carries American-made products from American manufacturers in his store, which must have their headquarters in the United States.
