Black Friday 2010: Buy American


As you're putting together a holiday gift list and checking it twice, instead of making sure you haven't forgotten anything or anyone, check to see if the items are made in America. How many do you think will be?

It's the rare story about retailing that doesn't garner reader comments about where the products are made. It's also the rare retailer that makes the effort to stock only American made goods. Deborah Leydig is one of those retailers. Her Barrington, Ill. business stocks exclusively products made in this country, something that has become increasingly difficult to do.
