“Mall Event Follows ‘Kickstands Up’ at Buffalo Charities’ 14th Annual Bike Fun to Benefit Food Bank”
Mark Andol, the founder and owner of the Made in America Store headquartered at 900 Maple Road in Elma, NY, is pleased to announce a customer appreciation day and grand opening of his 4th brick and mortar store in the Buffalo Niagara Region of New York State.
The early afternoon event on Saturday, April 26, taking place at the store’s McKinley Mall location, will be preceded by the launch of Buffalo’s Motorcycle Run Season at the Elma location of the Made in America Store. All motorcycles are welcome, with registrations starting at 10 a.m. and kickstands up at 12:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of WNY.
“Our growth to a fourth location, this one at McKinley Mall, would not be possible without the support of our loyal customers,” Andol began. “We wanted to make it convenient for Western New Yorkers to Buy American, and our Southtowns location is accessible for many customers who had traveled to our Elma location prior to our opening at McKinley.”
To convey his appreciation to the customers who have made the success of the Made in America Store possible, Andol is offering a 10% discount to all customers who shop at the McKinley location on Saturday, April 26. They will also be treated to musical entertainment by Nashville Recording Artist Ricky Lee and Western New York’s very own Jess Chizuk. Customers will hear the very best in Country Rock, Indie, Pop and Acoustic selections. They are also invited to enjoy a light lunch provided with the compliments of Mark Andol. The ribbon cutting is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
“Locating in the McKinley Mall made a lot of sense,” Andol continued. “Our Niagara Falls store at One Niagara, 360 Rainbow Boulevard, is a huge draw from a tourism standpoint. It’s a way that international visitors to the Falls can help create manufacturing jobs in the U.S., but it’s also frequented by domestic travelers, too.”
Andol’s third location is in Eastern Hills Mall, and appeals to residents of southern Niagara County and Erie County’s Northtowns, particularly Amherst, Williamsville and Clarence.
“To further add to our celebration, the Made in America Store is hosting both a pre- and post-Grand Opening concert featuring Ricky Lee. The concerts are open and free to the public, and refreshments are available for purchase,” Andol added.
At 8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 25, Ricky Lee will perform at the Elma Conservation Club, 600 Creek Road. At 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, he will bring the Made in America Store’s Customer Appreciation Weekend to a close at VFW Post 5798, 8989 Erie Road Angola, NY. The public is welcome.
