The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Orvis, 6/21 — Explore more than 200 items, each proudly made in America.
As concerns have grown about China and the decline of manufacturing in America in recent years, there’s been a noticeable rise in “Made in USA” messaging around the patriotic holidays—Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Veterans Day, but particularly around the 4th of July. This email from Orvis is a good example of this trend, which we should see play out more of the next couple of weeks as we approach Independence Day.
