‘Made in the USA’ is the clear choice for consumers purchasing gifts at ‘A Christmas Ornament Co.’ this holiday season. The Bethesda, Maryland based company has seen a double percentage increase in purchases from the 6% increase in 2010. Company president, Luke Wilbur, believes it has to do with an increase in American consumer patriotism:
“Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday sales were up 13%. We are grateful for the business and hope the momentum continues. We appreciate the fact that our customers are willing to pay a little more to for a high quality American manufactured ornament. We hired more help to make sure all the orders get processed efficiently with the care.”
In 2010, A Christmas Ornament Co. made the decision to sell only goods made in the United States. The company hopes to be example for the ‘Big Retail Brands’ that moved their operations to China, India, Pakistan and other countries.
“Foreign outsourcing poses the greatest threat to our economic independence and prosperity,” says Mr. Wilbur. “Americans now understand that companies selling foreign made goods like China pay only a fraction of the retail price sold here in the United States. We hope our representatives in Washington start listening and make real change. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!”
A Christmas Ornament’s catalog includes time-honored Christmas ornaments made of collectible glass, metal, and porcelain. In response to the flood of far-east imports, A Christmas Ornament Co. has distinguished itself by offering only American-made products. A Christmas Ornament strives to make it easy for everyone to purchase American-made Christmas ornaments at a reasonable price. In addition, A Christmas Ornament offers non-automated (American-sourced, of course) on-site customer service to answer any questions customers may have. The company focuses mainly on wholesale orders, but individuals may also purchase Christmas ornaments. The company has entrusted Yahoo, PayPal, and SunTrust Merchant Bank with protecting consumer transactions. All customers are sent an order confirmation via email and all orders are delivered in fully trackable packages with express couriers such as UPS, USPS and FedEx.
