A Made-in-USA store in Illinois.
ManufactureThis sends a hello to Norton's U.S.A., a unique general store in Barrington, Illinois that sells only products made in the U.S.
Norton's offers a wide range of Made-in-USA products, from clothing, toys, and beauty products, to housewares, stationery, and gardening items.
Proprietor (and actress) Deborah Leydig says her inspiration for launching Norton's U.S.A. came after after portraying Barbara Ehrenreich in a stage adaptation of Ehrenreich's book, Nickel And Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America. Leydig began to research made in U.S.A. products and was upset to "learn how many jobs had been shipped overseas."
She explains that Norton's U.S.A. was born from a mission "to keep America working."
