Made in America Store to unveil makeover of Elma site

The Made in America Store will unveil the extreme makeover at its flagship Elma location next month.

Six years after opening its first location at 1000 West Maple Court, the retailer has opened six other brick-and-mortar locations, three e-commerce sites, and is a destination for tour buses filled with shoppers attracted to the store’s mission of preserving American jobs.

The company broke ground on an expansion of its original Elma store in September. The overhaul triples the store’s square footage.

The company exclusively sells merchandise that is made in the United States. It was founded in 2010 by Mark Andol, owner of General Welding & Fabricating in Elma, after he lost several clients to manufacturers overseas.

The grand re-opening is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 21. There will be an American vendor marketplace as well as a free concert by Nashville musician Ricky Lee.

Made in America has locations at the Boulevard Mall, McKinley Mall, Walden Galleria, Eastern Hills Mall and Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls. It also has a seasonal location at One Niagara on Rainbow Boulevard in Niagara Falls. The flagship store is located just next to the Maple Road exit off the East Aurora Expressway on Route 400.
