SHOW LOW (3TV/CBS 5) -- It's the small-town store doing some big business, and it's not hard to figure out why.

"I love everything in here," customer Sherry Juarez said.

Welcome to The Trumped Store and Cafe in Show Low, the only brick-and-mortar business of its kind in the entire country.

Every day, customers from across the country stop in to show their support for the president and take home something that says Trump.

A bedazzled hat.

An "adorable deplorables" shirt.

How about a "Make Your Birthday Great" again card?

You can even get your picture taken with White House Press Secretary Sara Huckabee Sanders.

"To wear a hat, or to wear a shirt just makes me feel really good because I am a very conservative Republican," customer Mary Lou Dezeeuw said. "I like people to know that's who I am, and I feel proud to wear it."

Karen MacKean and Steve Slaton are the owners of The Trumped Store.

Back in 2016, they ran northeastern Arizona's Trump headquarters as volunteers, and couldn't help but notice the incredible demand for all things Trump, even after the election.

So, they decided to create a year-round business.

"In the beginning, we started with just a couple tables, a couple [of] T-shirts and some hats," Slaton said. "Now we have 27 T-shirts and 28 hats and a variety of different products that people just love."

The business took off even more after their store was vandalized last year.

"After that, it just exploded," MacKean said. "People came up from the Valley the entire weekend. We were packed with people, and from then on we knew we had something that people wanted."

According to Slaton, the best-selling item is still the red "Make America Great Again" hat; they call it "the OG MAGA hat."

The Trumped Store is located at 1041 E. Deuce of Clubs in Show Low. There is also an online shop at

Liberal Democrats socialist KYRSTEN SINEMA and DAVID GARCIA are running for Senate & Governor respectively. Sinema / Garcia both proudly supports "restructuring or "abolishing" ICE, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, using taxpayer funds for illegal aliens & DACA. In addition, both are weak on border security and national defense. Garcia supported by both La Raza & MALDEF.

If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, amnesty r Please VOTE NO for KYRSTEN SINEMA & DAVID GARCIA this November....we can't afford anymore Democrats. Both endorsed by LaRaza & MALDEF which says it ll.

Vote this election for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given ...not anymore.) Those who oppose sanctuary cities, open borders, non citizens voting, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts for illegals. That means NO Democrats. Democrats want to encourage, reward, protect illegal aliens with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships, then after they're here....protect them from deportation. This creates MORE illegal entry and the Democrats know this.

Vote Doug Ducey and Martha McSally for Governor and senate.


Wonder how long before the store suffers a mysterious fire (undoubtedly at the hands of some radical liberal.)
