Introduction
The location studied in this report is Towson University’s very own UStore, short for University Store (see Figure 3). This store is located on the first floor inside Towson University’s University Union (See Figure 4), which is located within Towson University’s Campus in Towson, MD. The exact address of the store is 8000 York Rd Towson, MD 21252. I choose this location because this location is convenient to me, as it is a 10-minute walk from my dorm. The UStore represents the intricacies of globalization because this store is one of the millions of stores (or is an example of the mil …) around the world that contains hundreds or thousands of consumer goods (made in different countries) to sell to consumers. The UStore, in particular, carries different items that are produced and shipped from all over the world to be sold to people, specifically Towson students, living in the surrounding area or in another state (or across the country or United States).
Analysis and Personal Interaction
In our society, most of the clothes that we wear are produced overseas in countries such as China, Bangladesh, India, and Ethiopia (Akhter, n.d.). As of today, China is the country that produces the most clothing (Garagnon 2021).
For this report, I am researching a White & Plaid Towson University Tee Shirt that is sold at the UStore located in Towson University’s University Union (See figures 2, 3, & 4). This shirt is made from 100% cotton and was created and sold to the UStore by Boxercraft, a company that sells retail and wholesale clothing and accessories to many college campuses (Boxrercraft, n.d.). Boxercraft’s clothes are produced overseas in the country of Guatemala (Boxrercraft, n.d.).
