Dotting the landscape with domestic-only stores
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!

Iím sure that most patriotic consumers would love to have a store, in their hometown, that sells only American-made goods. I know that I would!
So when businessman and entrepreneur Todd Scaccia opened a store in Nassau, New York (half way between Albany, New York and Pittsfield, Massachusetts) that does exactly that, he decided to name it Hometown Stores USA. Todd believes, (like I do), that every town across America needs a store thatís selling solely American-made goods.
And not just that, Todd guarantees that customers who order online wonít end up with a foreign-made product by mistake. Itís very simple, and it goes like this: every effortís been made to guarantee that Hometown USA products are made in America. If for some reason a product is shipped to you thatís not made in America, Hometown USA Stores guarantees a full refund and a 10% credit toward your next purchase.
So, with a powerful guarantee like that coming from such a passionate supporter of the buy American cause, what reason would patriotic consumers have to not check out Toddís brick-and-mortar Hometown USA store, or his online presence at www.hometownusastores.com?
In the store and on the Internet, youíll find a great variety of American-made products. Want a total? Here it is: youíll find over 2,500 American-made products from nearly 100 American vendors. Itís no wonder they have a 14,000 square foot facility to warehouse and inventory all those American-made products! Categories including automotive, clothing & accessories, footwear, furniture, grills, holiday products, patriotic products, pet products, seasonal products, sporting goods, stationary, tools, and toys.
A great feature on the www.hometownusastores.com website is the ability to sort by products, categories, or simply by the manufacturers themselves. S0, if youíre interested in American-made sporting goods, but donít want to sort through the golf products to get to the fishing gear, itís not a problem. If youíre looking for footwear, but want to skip past the boots and go right to the sandals selection, again, no problem. You can even sort by product name or by price within each category youíre browsing.
Looking for American-made gear to accompany you when youíre on the go? Check out Hometown USA Storesí impressive inventory of Filson products from hats, caps, belts, and wallets to wool blankets, gun cases, coats & jackets, pants, shirts, vests, and suspenders.
Iíve known for years that although Filson is a great resource for outdoor clothing, sporting goods, and related accessories, not all of their products are made in USA. So itís great to see that Hometown USA Stores has sorted through their large selection to carry only the American-made Filson products and not the imported ones.
If youíve ever entertained the thought of opening your own store of American-made products, Hometown USA Stores stands ready to help you. Theyíve developed their own system, and itís one thatís a proven success. Now theyĎre looking for patriotic-minded entrepreneurs and investors who want to partner with Hometown USA Stores to keep a dream alive; itís a dream of an American landscape dotted with stores that stock and sell only American products.
Hometown USA Stores knows that Americans overwhelmingly prefer American products when given a patriotic alternative to a similar imported product. Thatís why they offer as many as possible and make it as easy possible for consumers to access a large number of products from only domestic sources.
When the American economy isnít growing as fast as we think (or hope), buying American-made products is one sure way to help repair it. Then, when our economy is back on its feet, the way to keep it humming is the very same way that helped repair it -- by continuing to purchase American made products.
Hometown USA Stores is a great place to go to make sure we can find American products to buy, and keep our economy moving forward far into the future.
