'Made in Nevada' label vital to local businesses

Reno Gazette-Journal - By Alex Soeth
For businesses like Reno eNVy, whose business model is unique in the sense that they are not only selling products that have been finished in Nevada, but they are selling products specifically to Nevadans, Made in Nevada is an important part of their business.

“If we did not have the support of the local community, our business would not exist,” Scott Dunseath, owner of Reno eNVy, said. “We would not be able to hire employees and contribute to the economy and we would not be able to serve the community in the capacity of the Reno/Tahoe Visitors Center. Community support is the only reason we are in business.”

Made in Nevada currently represents small businesses as well as multiple manufacturing subsectors across the state. Membership opportunities are as low as $35 annually. A membership with Made in Nevada allows businesses to promote their goods with the Made in Nevada logo, letting buyers know they are purchasing locally sourced products. A membership with Made in Nevada also offers benefits such as participation in events, invitations to trade shows and exposure in the annual Nevada Spirit catalog, which is distributed to more than 15,000 people statewide.
