What you mean to McMow

Phil & Shanon Materio with Leza Hepler...McMow's humble beginnings

Thank you for supporting your Local Small Businesses!

Today, many of our spending interactions have become impersonal transactions. We shop at big-box stores, overseas online companies, and eat at chain restaurants. Small businesses, like McMow Art Glass are the foundation of what America was built on, providing about 60% of the job market today.
Small art glass studios like us are becoming harder to find each year. This is why NOW more than ever your support matters. Supporting your local small businesses is what makes our communities strong.
Here at McMow we are practicing what we preach. Last year we became part of a program that we believe is making a difference. The 3/50 project uses the slogan, “Pick 3. Spend $50. Save your local economy,” and encourages consumers to spend $50 a month with three local brick-and-mortar businesses. (That’s $50 a month total—although $50 per business would be great, too.).

What is the impact of spending trends like this? Here are the facts:
For every $100 spent in locally owned, independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain only $43 returns. Spend that online and nothing comes home.

If half the employed population spent just $50 locally it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue. Can you imagine the impact if 3/4 of the population shopped local and small?

We believe that each experience you have with us here at McMow is personal. We do our best to serve your needs, with limited resources. We enjoy hand-picking glass with our customers, fixing their equipment and answering all of those tricky questions...that Google could never answer. We strive to know our customers names, because you are the family that has supported us over the years.

Thank you for continued patronage and support throughout the years. McMow is our American dream, which is only a reality because of you!


The McMow Family
