MADE IN KC REOPENS TO AMERICAN CORONAVIRUS RETAIL END GAME CRASH!!!



The way that people buy stuff has fundamentally changed and COVID-19 has only hastened the decline of local retail.

Accordingly . . .

HARSH TIMES AHEAD FOR PRICEY LOCALLY CRAFTED MERCH!!!

Whilst cheap junk at box stores seems to be selling consistently, the really unique offerings of homegrown artists, artisans and creators face even more hardship trying to stand out from those wanting to satisfy shopping impulses with a few clicks.

People don't buy things just because the things are made in KC or USA. How many KC with a heart tshirts does the average individual need? Make something people need and perhaps then people will buy it.
