Store selling American-only products gaining attention for the holidays

ELMA, N.Y. (WVLT) -- Shoppers were encouraged to avoid big stores on "Small Business Saturday."

There was one small business in New York that offered customers something a little different compared to the others: everything inside it is "Made In America."

In Elma, every single item in the small town store is 100% percent made in America. To sell an item in this store, the company's headquarters also have to be here in the United States.

The store opened a little more than a year ago with only about 50 different items. It's grown to over 35,000 items supporting over 275 vendors.

The business says despite only being in it's second year, the idea to spend locally is already catching on.
