Everywhere you go, “Toys in every store” but which stores should you really be shopping in this year?  If you know anything at all about New Lawrenceville it is that we heavily promote LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL not only in the immediate Lawrenceville Community but in your own community as well. 

American Made products are the best way to go as they will continue to help employ US Citizens and strengthen the US Economy as well.   It takes only a few minutes to look at the package and find the MADE IN AMERICA Label or stamp.  Though Santa may see you when you’re sleeping and he knows if you’ve been bad or good, he also sees you when you buy GEORGIA MADE PRODUCTS as well and that puts you at the top of Santa’s NICE list.  An easy way to find out about those Georgia and American made products is to reach out to Jason Moss of Manufactured in Georgia.  Jason is helping Georgia-based manufacturing companies clearly identify their products as being Manufactured In Georgia that allows the end consumer to make an informed choice on their purchases. He states our educational-minded ad campaigns and promotional events will build consumer awareness and branding that will produce an increase in sales for Georgia manufacturers. Increased sales will lead to higher production demand and will allow manufacturers to create more jobs within their companies, Growing jobs in Georgia! (Visit and to LIKE)
