monday stat retailers local

According to Gifts and Decorative Accessories' 2017 Today's Gift Retailer Survey, 76 percent of retailers plan to expand their selection of products that were made in America, and 44 percent plan to expand their offering of locally sourced products. Even big retail chains like West Elm have increased their locally made products inventory. Consumers have shifted focus from buying what's cheapest to buying something to support local artisans, and retailers are taking note and benefiting from the trend.
