The Made in America Store will welcome the Korean Broadcasting System to its Elma store Thursday.
The TV crew will interview owner Mark Andol about the store's success for a larger story about the world economy. It will air in South Korea in June.
It's not the first time the Made in America Store has received national or international coverage. It has also appeared on ABC's "World News Tonight" on ABC, Fox News' "Fox & Friends," and Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper.
The first Made in America Store opened in 2010. Today it has locations at the Boulevard Mall, Eastern Hills Mall, McKinley Mall, Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, Walden Galleria and seasonally at the One Niagara welcome center in Niagara Falls. The original store in Elma remains its flagship location and underwent a major expansion last year. The company also has 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 exclusively sells merchandise that is made in the United States. It was founded by Andol, who also owns General Welding & Fabricating in Elma, after he lost several clients to overseas manufacturers.
