Buy American- Story

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 16, 2012

Here is a great story from a great website which shows us how to buy American made goods.


It’s not often that American-made intersects with American theater and the result brings a new brick-and-mortar store to life, but oddly enough that’s exactly what happened in Barrington, Illinois. And it’s part of the story of the start of possibly the first ever brick-and-mortar store in America to sell only American goods.

Barrington is just a few miles northwest of Chicago, and Chicago is home to the Steppenwolf Theater Company. In 2003, they staged an adaptation of Barbara Ehrenreich’s book, “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America.”
