Happy Holidays to Strictly USA Customers and Supporters:
The holidays are once again upon us. Which means family, friends, feasts, and get ready .. ...SHOPPING! This year let's make the day after Thanksgiving RED, WHITE AND BLUE Friday*, and let the big boxers fight it out for Black Friday. What we mean is ..we should all do something different this holiday season and make it a point to buy made in USA whenever possible. Whether you buy from Strictly USA or someplace else (shame on you!), let's support our USA manufacturers so they can continue to grow, keep workers working and keep the economy moving forward. You'll feel great and so will your recipients. Plus you don't have to join a wild stampede at 4:00am!

NEW PRODUCT: CEACO/ Gamewright Games/ Puzzles.

Dan Brown, founder and CEO of Loggerhead Tools (a Strictly USA supplier) recently was forced to lay off 30 or so workers in Pennsylvania  after he "lost" his biggest account, Sears. Loggerhead had an exclusive with Sears who agreed to sell Loggerheads American made Bionic Wrench. And sell they did: this time last year Loggerhead was booming and shifts were added to meet demand. This year though Sears dropped Loggerhead as supplier and it was soon discovered why.

Sears had produced what they now deny is their own version of the Bionic Wrench, the Max Axxess wrench which is not surprisingly made in China. Even a non-engineer type person can see it's a blatant knock-off. Sears denies the allegations and will contest any accusations in court.

Watch out Sears! This time Mr. Brown is not going without a fight. And he has plenty of supporters in his corner. READ MORE HERE...

Strictly USA is proud to offer the still made in America line of Loggerhead Tools. They make a wonderful gift for Dad, brother or uncle. Or any do-it-yourselfer  who likes to tinker and fix things.

We realize the holidays, and the accompanying shopping trips, are a busy and hectic time for everyone.  All we ask is that you read your labels and tags and try to make conscious purchasing decisions, ie buy Made in USA products!  When you buy American; you'll feel great, your recipient will get a high quality product and somewhere in some factory, you'll be keeping hard working Americans employed. And the money stays in this country.

Let's make it a  "Made in America" Christmas and Hanukkah !

We wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season.
