In 1985, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation declaring the month of December “Made in America” month. CMC Government Supply encourages Americans to continue support of this tradition and consider products that are Made in America this holiday season.
There are many reasons shopping for “Made in America” products is the right choice when selecting the perfect gift for family and friends.
One important reason to buy products “Made in America” is that it supports local economy and families. The companies that manufacture products in the U.S. hire local residents. Local residents in turn, support local businesses. Strong businesses lead to strong cities. Strong cities lead to strong counties, and so on.

“Many Americans prefer to buy American products. It encourages patriotism, a sense of pride and belonging,” stated Debby Parker, Vice President of CMC Government Supply. “There are many fine products to choose from. We have quite a variety of items that are made in America.”
