Many retailers across the U.S. are facing the issue of empty shelves due to supply chain issues that were escalated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Buying products that are made in the U.S. can greatly help to not only get merchandise in on time, but also to save some money on shipping costs.
Customers today are increasingly looking to shop local and support more sustainable businesses. Locally manufactured products can help retailers bypass congested ports and shipping lanes in the near term and satisfy customer demand. Putting inventory within reach of the final mile creates faster logistics options for businesses of any size that use a scalable, asset-free approach to delivery. “We are finding that more products are being offered from U.S. manufacturers than ever before,” Brett Rose, CEO of UNCS, said. “The push to have more things made in America is fantastic. You can buy great plastics from the states, and while a retailer is always looking for the cheapest price, Made in USA products are free from tariffs, which is a competitive advantage, and the quality is superior”.
Especially since brick-and-mortar traffic is already starting to pick up with the warmer weather and vaccine rollouts, indie retailers need to order now to make sure they have enough merchandise on their shelves. Here are some new and trendy products that are made in the U.S.:
