    Many of our products are made over seas in order to keep costs down. Even some Harly Davidson parts are made in China. Alot of our flooring ie laminates and hardwoods are made in China as well. If you want to buy American made products you will pay much more for them on count of labor costs. With the economy as it is and we are all bargin shoppers here mostly then I beleive price is a major factor when it comes to purchases.
