  • 500th Tour Bus Heads To New Made In America Store This Saturday

    "Bank Travel Club from Oklahoma will be greeted by Mark Andol, Founder"

    AD 1

    Elma, NY, June 16, 2016 - Saturday morning, June 18th, history will be made at Buffalo Niagara's brand new World Class Destination: Made in America Store, 1000 W. Maple Court in Elma, New York.

    "We eagerly await our 500th bus, filled with Oklahomans," Andol began. "We love every bus we receive at the Made in America Store, but it really highlights our store as a national attraction when we are able to welcome visitors from so far away."
    The 500th bus from Oklahoma will be sandwiched in arrival time between a bus from Tennessee earlier that morning and a bus group from Mississippi Father's Day morning.
    The original Made in America Store celebrated its 6th anniversary on April 3, 2016.  On May 21, 2016, Mark Andol and his family hosted a community celebration marking the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new flagship store and world class destination.
    "Over the last month, we have hosted a number of customer groups who have been integral to our success," Andol continued. "Our new store served as the host site for a meeting of Joining Community Forces, with more than 50 veterans and veterans' advocates in attendance, on May 20.
    "Earlier that same week, we previewed our new world class destination for an important group of clients - tour operators from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Southern Ontario and New York State.  The tour operators appreciated the features we incorporated into the new building - features that are custom-designed for bus groups," Andol added.
    Andol noted that the Made in America Store is en route to many popular destinations north and east of the store - including the architectural and historical treasures of Buffalo; the unparalleled natural beauty of Niagara Falls, Finger Lakes, 1000 Islands and Adirondacks; New England and the prime Canadian destinations of the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario.
    "Location.  Location.  Location.  When you couple that with our mission to save and create American jobs, our world class destination is a win/win.  It's a collective win for our tourism partners, for visitors traveling to and through our region and for the thousands of Americans employed by the 500 manufacturers we help support.  We now have seven brick & mortar locations, three e-commerce sites (including wholesale) and the robust tour bus trade we welcome at our brand new flagship store in Elma, our location at Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls and our second floor shop at One Niagara," Andol concluded.

  • Kinney Drugs Joins Made In America Store Mission To "Rebuild The America Dream"

    Just in Time for Memorial Day!


    100 Kinney Stores in New York State & Vermont Have Added Company-wide Merchandising of
    100% American Made Products to Every Location

    Elma, NY.  Mark Andol, Founder & CEO of the Made in America Store, announced the brand new collaboration with Kinney Drugs in bringing 100% American Made Products to Kinney customers across New York State and Vermont. The new business relationship brings American-made products to Kinney customers in time for Memorial Day and throughout the upcoming patriotic summer season. This store in store concept message is “Consumers Creating Jobs with every purchase”.

    KINNEY

    “The Made in America Store family is thrilled to become Kinney Drugs’ wholesale provider of 100% American Made Products,” Mark Andol began.  “By doing so, Kinney Drugs has become the model for how easy it is for retailers to bring ‘Made in the U.S.A.‘ labels back on store shelves at the lowest cost possible.”

    Kinney Drugs now joins VCS (Veterans Canteen Service) stores that are housed in VA Medical Centers across the United States, in addition to “mom & pop” retailers from as far as Texas, who are sourcing their American made products from the Made in America Store World Distribution Center in Elma, NY.

    “From our first contact with Kinney Drugs, to the fruition of our contract, the management team of Kinney has shown a tremendous amount of respect, foresight and love of country,” Andol continued.  “Kinney is effectively and tangibly responding to the demands of its customers to offer more American made products at American value prices.”

    Andol noted that the Made in America Store makes it easy for retailers to buy American made products at wholesale pricing to, in turn, offer it to their customers.  American consumers are eager to be a part of the consumer movement to encourage the re-shoring of good-paying American jobs that had been sent overseas over the last three decades.

     “Together, Kinney Drugs and the Made in America Store are demonstrating the can-do spirit of American entrepreneurs.  We don’t just ‘talk the talk’ at our companies.  We ‘walk the walk’ to save and create American jobs with every purchase our customers make.“

    “We invite American retailers – large and small – to join our movement, putting into action our mission, “for country, for soldier, for American worker and for our children’s future,” Andol concluded.

    The Made in America Store has eight brick & mortar locations in Western New York, two e-commerce sites – Made in America Store.com and Amazon – as well as mobile stores at the Jam in the Valley, Eden Corn Festival, Erie County Fair and veterans events near and far.

    Retailers interested in purchasing 100% American Made Products in custom-designed quantities at wholesale pricing should call the Made in America Store’s Wholesale Department at (716) 805-8342. #        #             #

    Community Thank You Event Will Feature BBQ, Free Concert, Antique Car Show, Marketplace & Giveaways”

    NEWEST-STORE

    As his way of saying thank you for Western New York’s support of the Made in America Store, now entering its 7th year in business, Mark Andol is hosting his most ambitious community event to date.

    Free family fun is the focus of our celebration this Saturday,” began Mark Andol, founder and CEO of the Made in America Store. “There’ll be something for everybody – young, young at heart and everyone in-between.”

    Five bands will provide entertainment from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.  The event begins at 10 a.m. with a wonderful vendor and exhibitor showcase with free samples and demonstrations.  A tour bus from Wisconsin is scheduled to arrive at 10:45 a.m., as well as a large group from Ohio shortly after.  A smoked BBQ chicken dinner will be on sale starting at 11 a.m. to sell out.  Pre-sale tickets are available at every store location.

    “At 1 p.m., we’ll cut the ribbon on our new store location and have a brief program paying tribute to our nation’s veterans and military as we commemorate Armed Forces Day,” Andol added.  “A display of Patriot Plaques, diamond-etched in black granite, will be on display at the store May 20 & 21, a poignant reminder of the cost of freedom borne by Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”

    The day will also include a live demonstration of a chain saw carving of a brand new wooden sculpture of the flag-raising at Iwo Jima by Matt Hannah, former Marine.  Viewing this demonstration will be a U.S. Marine Corps survivor of the Battle of Iwo Jima.

    “In addition, there will be an antique car show featuring Model A’s and Model T’s, a demonstration by Certified Farrier Terry Jolls and a display of Maple View Alpacas,” continued Andol. “The exhibitor area will have a number of tables dedicated to services for veterans and military families.”

    The bands will be headlined by Nashville Recording Artist Ricky Lee, founder of Music 4 R Vets.  His 2 p.m. performance will be preceded by sets played by Nick Kody & The Creek Road Band and The Original CPR Band.  Following Ricky Lee’s set, musical entertainment will the provided by Not Quite Right and The Marshall Dillon Band.  On the hour, a prize drawing will be held (winners must be present to win).

                    “The Grand Opening of our new flagship store is the pinnacle event of our store’s young history.  There are many future chapters to be written on the role of the Made in America Store in the resurgence of U.S. manufacturing.  The response from across the U.S. has been heartening, but it all began in the little town of Elma six years ago, with support from our family, neighbors and friends,” Andol concluded.

  • Made In America Hosts Tour Operators At May 17 Preview Of New Store

    “Tourism Partners from East Aurora, Visit Buffalo Niagara and Niagara Tourism & Convention Corporation Collaborate to Promote Visitation Throughout the Region through The Americana Tour”

    NEWEST-STORE

    The Made in America Store is making history once again by hosting another unprecedented event. For the first time, an attraction is harnessing its own major announcement to serve as the basis for a matchmaking event to benefit other attractions. Through its sneak peek event, the Made in America Store is bringing tour operators (buyers of tourism product) together with select area attractions (sellers of tourism product) to give visitors to Buffalo Niagara even more reasons to come to our area.

    “We wanted the Grand Opening of our new flagship store to tell a larger story about what our region has to offer,” began Mark Andol, founder and CEO of the Made in America Store and its parent company, General Welding & Fabricating. “Both of our destination marketing organizations in Western New York – Visit Buffalo Niagara and Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. – work really hard to promote the region.   We felt we could do more as a supplier of tourism product, and encourage others to do the same.”

    “As an attraction with a national audience, we wanted our Grand Opening on May 21 to serve as the pinnacle event for a new spirit of collaboration – peer -to-peer – among partners in tourism from East Aurora to Niagara Falls,” Andol added.  “When it comes to attracting group tours to our area, more is more.”

    During the evening of May 16, the day prior to the Tour Operator Preview at Made in America, owners and representatives of tour companies from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Southern Ontario and New York State will begin “The Americana Tour” with an overnight stay at the Roycroft Inn and an East Aurora Epicurean Experience presented by Buffalo Bites Food Tours.  Several tour operators will stay in the village after dinner to take in the new movie – Captain America – at the historic Aurora Theatre and visit the bars and new craft breweries that have sprung up recently in the quaint village of East Aurora.

    The Americana Tour continues the next morning with a mini-trade show of attractions and specialty shops on Tuesday, May 17 at the Made in America Store, starting at 10 a.m.  The program begins at 11 a.m., with Mark Andol delivering remarks, as well as Patrick Kaler from Visit Buffalo Niagara and John Percy from Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp.  Tours of the store will wrap up the Made in America Store event, with the tour operators departing for a luncheon at the Roycroft Inn to continue The Americana Tour.

    After lunch, tour operators will visit other sites in the Village of East Aurora and beyond.

  • Made In America Plans Weeklong Celebration Leading Up To New Store Grand Opening On May 21

                    “Tour Operators and Veterans will be given their own Preview Events on May 17 and May 20”

    In advance of the Community Grand Opening Celebration and Ribbon Cutting of the new Made in America Store at 1000 W. Maple Court in Elma, NY on Saturday, May 21, 2016, Mark Andol, Founder and CEO, will host two sneak peek events.

    AD 1

                    “On Tuesday morning, May 17, tour operators from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Southern Ontario and New York State will be given a tour of our new flagship store, which was custom-designed to accommodate tour bus groups,” Andol began. “From our at-grade bus entrance into our brand new hospitality area to our catered serving kitchen, we have placed the needs of bus groups at the forefront of our building design.”

                    Made in America’s new store features expanded restroom facilities that will be able to accommodate tight bus itineraries without compromising the warm hospitality for which the store is known.

                    “Whether the welcome is given by our head buyer/store manager, director of business development or me, the CEO, buses are greeted by a member of our management team,” Andol continued. “Our preview event will allow tour operators to explore the many reasons it makes sense to bring their bus groups to the Made in America Store, whether it’s for an enhanced restroom/refreshment stop, or we’re the main attraction on tour.”

                    On Friday, May 20, Andol is especially proud to offer his store as the host site of a meeting of Joining Community Forces (JCF), a network of veterans and veterans advocates providing a broad range of services to veterans and military families.  The group is organized by the Family Assistance Program of the New York National Guard based at the Connecticut Street Armory.

                    “The JCF meeting takes place the day before our May 21 grand opening, which we selected since this year it falls on Armed Forces Day.  We were pleased to have been the first business to sign onto the County Clerk’s Thank a Vet Program, and we have a proud history of assisting many philanthropies associated with America’s veterans and military, including Socks for Soldiers, Mama Cindy Soldier Program, VFW Military Assistance Program, Music 4 R Vets and others,” Andol added.

                    Andol also hinted at a major announcement the store will make the week following the Grand Opening Celebration.

                    “Since Opening Day on April 3, 2010, our mission has focused on American job creation by unleashing the buying power of American consumers, wherever they shop.  Consumer demand is the key that will unlock the amazing job-creating potential of the Made in America Movement,” Andol concluded.

                    The Grand Opening Celebration on May 21st is a family-friendly event that features a 1 p.m. Ribbon Cutting, free concert with music provided by 5 bands, headlined by Nashville Recording Artist Ricky Lee; a smoked chicken dinner by Dale’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ (12 noon ‘til sold out); and a vendor marketplace with 50 exhibitors.  The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

  • Just In Time For Armed Forces Day On May 21st, Made In America Store Announces Its Newest Collaboration With VCS Patriot Stores In VA's Across The U.S. & In Puerto Rico

    “Veterans Canteen Service (VCS) PatriotStores are located in every Veterans Administration Medical Center”

    VCS Logo
    The Made in America Store, headquartered in Elma, New York, just announced that it has renewed its collaboration with Veterans Canteen Service (VCS), the company that operates 171 PatriotStores in VA facilities.  The Made in America Store has distributed 14 top-selling products to VCS, which is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year.  The Made in America Store World Distribution Center opened in 2012 and VCS was its first major wholesale account.

                    “Veterans have always been our most loyal and valued customers,” stated Mark Andol, founder and CEO of the Made in America Store.  “This collaboration with VCS ensures that 100% American Made Products are made available to every Veterans Administration Medical Center across the country.”

    VCS operates more than 172 stores nationwide.  The stores provide convenient shopping for Veterans, their families, caregivers, VA employees, volunteers and all visitors.  Veterans and their families have been strong supporters of the Made in America Store since it opened in 2010.

    “Our motto – “For country, for soldier, for American worker” – demonstrates the esteem with which our company holds every man and woman who has worn – or is still wearing – a U.S. military uniform,” Andol continued.  “Simply put, we would not be here without the service and sacrifice of our nation’s veterans and the current generation of our military in harm’s way now.”

    Made in America Store products are featured in the product catalog published by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs for distribution to Patriot Stores – and their customers – from “sea to shining sea.”  VCS also sells health & beauty care products, beverages & snacks, entertainment items, electronics, gifts, stationary, clothing and accessories in well-stocked men’s and women’s departments.

    Mark Andol first met representatives from VCS at the National Veterans Golden Age Games, held in Buffalo in spring 2013.  VCS was a major sponsor of the event, and the Made in America Store provided entertainment by Nashville recording artist Ricky Lee at the Opening Ceremonies.

    “Our store gives back to veterans each and every day with a 10% discount.  All veterans know the price of freedom.  More than any other American, our military and veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn know the high cost of America’s outsourcing of jobs overseas when they seek employment upon their return home.  They and all veterans prefer buying items made in the United States,” Andol added.

    “Our store makes it easy for them to do so on-line at MadeinAmericaStore.com or Amazon, our brick and mortar stores in Buffalo Niagara, and at 171 VA Medical Centers across the USA,” Andol concluded.

  • Buffalo Tom's Gourmet Hot Sauce Tasting Tour 2016!

    The team behind the Made In America Store is always excited when they get a new, 100% USA made vendor into their store, and the story is no different when Buffalo Tom showed up. Buffalo Tom brings a new Hot Sauce to the condiment table that goes perfectly as an additive or topping for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

    To help celebrate the new contender in mouth watering condiments, Buffalo Tom is doing a 7 Store Tour, where he will be setting up shop, giving samples, and spreading the word. This tour is called the "Buffalo Tom's Gourmet Hot Sauce Tasting Tour 2016".

    BUFF TOM

    Buffalo Tom will also be setting up shop at our May 21st Grand Opening Event as part of his tour.

    For a little background on Buffalo Tom's history, we pulled from his website;

    "Since 1976 I have been involved in the Restaurant Industry. I have developed skills in every aspect of the business. Originally from Buffalo New York, I  spent 10 years in Ft. Lauderdale Fla, from 1992 to 2002 sharing my Hot Sauce at various Restaurants that have employed me.

    Ft. Lauderdale, is a hot vacation spot and visited by people from other states and abroad and I have been asked over and over again by my customers, when my Sauce will be coming to their home town. In April of 2002 I decided to move back to Buffalo and embark on a mission to give my customers, from around the world, what they have been asking for.

    With out further adieu let me introduce to you Buffalo Tom's Gourmet Hot Sauce. My Sauce began it's Journey into the Marketplace in 2002 and for 5 years there was a steady climb of new customers and reorders from Established customers. I had at least 1 customer from every State and so I was then able to announce the phrase..."Buffalo Tom's Across The Nation"

    In 2007 my Sauce Production was put on hold due to circumstances beyond my control and Family Matters that needed my utmost full attention ( Being a Full Time Caregiver of my Mom and Dad). My Dad passed in 2012, on July 3rd, one day shy of his 86th Birthday. My Dad was born on the 4th of July in 1926 and named after the President at that time..."Calvin Coolidge" R.I.P. Dad, Love and Miss you so much. I still take care of my Mom who is in the final stages of Alzheimers. I brought my sauce back out after my Dad passed in 2012. I am back and so ready to bring you the best of the best. Get ready to take your taste buds on a flavor ride like never before.

    I highly recommend my (Original) hot sauce to be 2nd to none in the industry. Being of medium hotness with a flavor sensation all it's own, Buffalo Tom's can be used as an additive or a topping to boost the flavor of any food, from breakfast to dinner and beyond! Do Yourself and Your taste buds a favor and Just try it, and say "Yeah Baby" Just like I Did!..."
