All-American Add-Ons By Zeke Jennings

Boost your add-on sales with these U.S.-made products

Choosing the right kind of merchandise to display around your point-of-sale station shouldn’t be an afterthought. Those items you choose to surround your cash wrap are the last the customer is going to see before leaving your store.

You’ve worked hard to fill the bulk of your store with unique, quality products. Why should the cash wrap station be any different? Now, we know impulse-buy winners include candy, gum, mints, snacks, stationery and inexpensive jewelry and souvenirs, and we know consumers yearn for U.S.-made items.

So, we offer a collection of products in varying categories, all of which are made in the U.S. and would be a perfect addition to your point-of-sale product display.
