Who isn't looking for ways to jumpstart the American economy?
There are many politicians across America that feel a cohesive effort by the American population to purchase American-made goods is the answer. Michigan based GregRobert Discount Pet Supplies, announced today the launch of the "Made in the USA" pet store on it's corporate website: http://www.grpet.com/.
The initiative includes USA made products highlighted in a special section. In addition, throughout the website, USA-made pet products are signified with an American flag next to the price.
With more and more stories becoming public that outline poor manufacturing facilities in some parts of the world, American pet owners are becoming concerned. This concern coupled with a stagnant US economy has made American Made pet products more appealing to consumers. Recent news articles regarding pet food manufacturing facilities and contaminated pet medications are fueling some of the concern.
GregRobert pet supplies has responded by researching the manufacturing origin of the pet products that they carry. By grouping pet products manufactured on American soil in a special section on their website dubbed the "Made in the USA Pet Store", they have made it easy to find US made pet products in one area.
The Made in the USA Pet Store at GregRobert is sectioned off into multiple categories including popular pet products like:
CEO of GregRobert Enterprises commented: "No political statements are intended with this Made in the USA pet store launch. We intend to increase our corporate citizenship efforts during these trying times, and this is just one way that we feel we can help".
Many US citizens believe that Americans should buy USA made products. The theory is that once Americans start buying more American goods, the demand for them will increase. As a result of the rising demand, more factories or plants will be developed. More good job opportunities will result from the movement.

Who can resist a trip to the local cider mill on a beautiful fall day. When we were kids on the East side of Detroit, we'd load up the car and visit Yates Cider Mill. What a lovely place.
Last week we loaded up the kids and took them over to Franklin Cider Mill in Franklin, Michigan. After all these years, it still pumps out the most delicious cider and scrumptious donuts.
