Are you as tired as me of seeing Made In China on most everything? Or do you not even look? We look and we try our best to buy products to have in our stores made in the USA. Something as simple as electrical cords for vacuums are hard to find made in America. A vacuum cord!! Simple everyday items are not being produced in this country the way they were years ago. We are very proud of our Riccar line that is made here in America in St James Missouri. The quality is stellar and the workmanship is fantastic! They are made to last not disposable like the majority of vacuums today coming from China. There are two links I would like to share with you. The Riccar Vacuum website and a great one called American Made Matters. It is a great resource to find products made in America. Please check them out!
