DL retailers deal with new flag law
DETROIT LAKES - A new law requiring American flags sold in Minnesota to have been made in the U.S.A. has not hurt sales, and may have helped, according to some Detroit Lakes retailers.
"We've probably sold more of them, now that people are hearing about it," said Dan Purkat, store manager at L&M Fleet. "We only had one imported flag, anyway -- a little hand-held flag. People have always been willing to pay a little more to get the U.S. product."
