Xenna Corporation (/www.xenna.com) CEO Carol J. Buck says that particularly during the holidays, one way to help get America back on the right track is for consumers to look for American-made Christmas gifts.
âIn the 1960s, nine out of every 10 products Americans bought for the holidays were made in America. Today easily more than half of what we buy is foreign-made,â says Buck.
Princeton, New Jersey, based Xenna manufactures USA made, natural foot care products that are sold nationwide through chain drug and mass retail chains, including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid. According to Buck, small business owners have many reasons to resist cutting costs by outsourcing materials or labor overseas.
âI could have gone to China for my productsâ production at a much lower cost, but we didnât. Why? Because I prefer to do business with Americans – folks who are close by at a plant I can visit. I also know that the facilities and raw materials are being quality-tested at each step of the process and that production remain on schedule.â
American consumers and business owners alike have learned some hard lessons about the real costs associated with relying too heavily on imported products. The result is a resurgence of interest in âbuying American,â and its supporters believe itâs the underlying key to renewing American prosperity.
âSince millions of Americans are now unemployed or underemployed, consumers should be thinking twice about buying products made outside the U.S.,â says Buck. âBuying American is simply the patriotic thing to do. When consumers buy American-made products, theyâre helping create jobs for Americans. This also falls into the category of Christmas giving.â
All Xenna products are manufactured in the USA, and are 100% money-back guaranteed.
