Carhartt began as an American company back in 1889. Rapid progress followed but like today’s uncertain economic times, Carhartt was hit by the Great Depression in the late 1920’s. Three surviving plants remained from that uncertain time. However, now Carhartt Clothing is made in over 17 plants spanning across the world. With American jobs being lost and high unemployment dotting the charts, Carhartt has decided to do something about this, for their country. Four of Carhartt’s most popular products will be made completely in the United States for the Fall 2012 line. Again, you are hearing this correctly. Carhartt has made the ultimate decision to stop outsourcing some of their most popular styles. Although this will increase American jobs, this may also increase the overall cost for Carhartt to produce these items. This is something they are willing and proud to do, ultimately in supporting the American workers. The styles that will now be solely American made are the J131, J140, J001 and the B01. These items all pertain to the Carhartt clothing line. These include J131 Men’s Active Duck Jacket with thermal lining, J140 Men’s Duck Active Jacket quilted with flannel lining, J001 Men’s Duck Detroit Jacket with blanket lining and B01 Men’s Double Front Dungaree Work Pants. All colors of these lines will be made in the US starting in Fall 2012. Get your Carhartt workwear at WorkingPerson.com, and make sure you search for these items so you can boast your American Pride!

There are exciting things happening at Carhartt!
About @WPSBusinessTeam: Like most of the best ideas, Working Person’s store began with disappointment. In October 1994, Dennis Deniger realized that disappointment when he couldn’t find a single store that could outfit him from head to toe with appropriate work wear. So he started his own. He bought a small shoe repair business from Virgil and Joanne Waltz in the small town of Lakeville, Indiana called V&J shoes, and less than 18 years later, that small beginning turned into a multi-million dollar company. Today, with his son Eric Deniger running the family business, Working Person’s Store is the #1 world-wide destination for quality work clothing, work footwear and safety gear, serving thousands of customers daily, on five different continents. And it is one of the 500 fastest-growing privately-owned businesses in the country. We still aren’t the biggest, but we’re proud to be the best. Through the boom of the Internet and the collapse of the economy, Working Person’s Store has remained successful because we have remained focused on our customers. The buying experience is different here. We believe that quality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. Which is why we only sell quality products that pass stringent requirements for durability and reliability, and we sell them at a price that you can afford. And we guarantee it, with our exclusive 120% Price Protection Guarantee, and free shipping on orders of $49 or more. We serve businesses and government agencies including all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Our team is dedicated to serving the needs of these organizations and will help you every step of the way. We have attractive programs for groups of all sizes and offer time-saving and cost effective services such as in-house embroidery and screen printing. We are also an approved GSA vendor. We maintain a great selection of work boots, work uniforms, fire-resistant apparel, high visibility apparel, work gloves and safety glasses from great brands like Carhartt Clothing, Wolverine Boots, Dickies Uniforms and Workwear, Danner Boots, Bates Boots, Converse Boots and more. We work to keep our customers updated on the latest developments in work wear, with Workingperson.me. We launched this site to raise awareness about the products we offer, help our customers learn about those products and technology, and provide information for people who might not know about Workingperson.com. We work closely with our retailers to put the most useful information in a place that is easily accessible. Today, as when the business began almost two decades ago, when you shop at Working Person's Store and Workingperson.com, you'll still feel like you're shopping in a small shoe store in a small town in Indiana. Our attention and customer service makes that as true today as it ever was.
