Local small business touted in New Balance marketing campaign

Harrisburg-based 2nd Story Wood Co.'s own story is making an appearance in New Balance's new "America is for the Makers" marketing campaign touting domestic manufacturing. 

Started by father-son duo Carl and Scott Miller, the small business sells handmade furniture from reclaimed wood. The Millers designed New Balance's in-store wood fixtures and is currently featured on the athletic wear retailer's website. 

"We deliver...a high-quality product we believe in," Scott Miller says in the video. 

One-fourth of New Balance's footwear is produced at five New England facilities, according to a company press release. 

New Balance reported sales of $2.4 billion in 2012.
