IF there were an American made store would you go to it?

If there was a store in your area that sold American made products like handbags, soaps, blankets, candles, clothes, toys, pillows etc.(Not crafty items) and the prices were reasonable would you make a point to shop there before you went to a big chain store (Wal-Mart)?
Thank You
Stacey

  • I dont care about walmarts ethics. I shop there because they bring me the best prices on things I use all the time. If there was a competitor then yep Id go there too.

  • If u find ANY place that has low and/or reasonable prices and good quality, then there is no reason why u can't shop there. Besides, walmart isnt as great as everyone says. believe me, i used to work there! :)

  • I would go to a store that sold only American made even if it was a bit more expensive because the safety of the items would not be in question as much. I shop for items that are NOT made in China, and I only buy dishes and glasses that are made in America because alot of dishes and bakeware made in other countries are often made with materials that are not food safe. I prefer clothing and toys made in USA also, because of the standards for chemicals in our toys that other countries do not have.

  • It would be great to have a store that had only American made products that were a good price. It would bring so many more jobs to the US. Everything is being made over seas because it is cheaper. That is very sad!

  • I would! I'd even pay a little more than Walmart if it kept an American in a job!
