In 2015, almost 8 in 10 American consumers say they would rather buy an American-made product than an imported one, according to a Consumer Reports survey.
People are even willing to pay up to 10% more to know that this is the case.
Why do people feel this way? When it comes to furniture, what are the main benefits of buying American furniture versus imported items?
Read ahead to see what people say.
Customization & Craftsmanship
We like to think that we are getting the best value for each dollar we spend. Don’t you spend a few extra minutes after finding that perfect dress to make sure that all the seams look tight and it doesn’t have any spots on it? We all review the racks available in our size and make sure to get the best one available.
Unfortunately, furniture is not quite so simple. They don’t have twenty of the perfect couch sitting out for you to walk around them and pick through to make sure it is flawless.
American furniture is made with quality hardwoods and put together by master craftsmen. You are not only purchasing a superior product, that will stand the test of time, but you are also purchasing an outstanding and reliable warranty.
That’s why American furniture purchases are perfect when you are getting ready to make the sizable investment into an heirloom dining room set that needs to last through your grandchildren.
Don’t you deserve the options and customization available to truly make that investment of furniture customized to you and your decor?
Investing In America’s Future
Manufacturing in America to produce this furniture guarantees thousands of jobs. We all want to make sure those employment opportunities are there for our future children and grandchildren for years to come.
When we keep manufacturing products in our own country, we can make sure that the labor standards and environmental factors are followed properly. Outsourcing to other countries is all the rage, but these are sensitive and controversial subjects. Eco-friendly practices and child labor shouldn’t have any room for error!
When we invest our hard earned money into American furniture, we are ensuring that the most current technologies are being used in conjunction with the highest craftsmanship.
Pride In American Furniture
American’s led the world in mass producing everything from automobiles to televisions, but the “deindustrialization” is continuing at a frightening pace. The only way to keep our manufacturing plants from disappearing abroad is to keep purchasing locally.
As Americans, we have great pride in our independence. Shouldn’t this same pride reflect in our purchases? Importing items that we can produce locally is contrary to our innate national honor.
Join the growing group of Americans who are making a real effort to keep the market strong.
