I've been working with my team to launch our store, however, we've been running into difficulties finding wholesalers to work with. We have a mock up store ready to show prospective suppliers so they know we're on it and ready to launch as soon as we have some product to sell, however, the actual task of finding USA based wholesalers who will work with drop shippers is a bit tricky. We've sent some emails to manufacturers of brands we want to offer in our store, asking them for recommendations of wholesalers they sold to that we could work with. However, none of the responses, if we got any, were positive, and usually contained some odd excuse about how they couldn't work with us, but saying they'd love to see our site once it's up. (Leading us to believe there might have been some breach of protocol or etiquette we made in the industry by contacting the manufacturer about the wholesalers they work with. We're not sure about this though.)
We're still researching it and looking; just in case though, I was wondering if anyone here had any good experience, advice, etc. on how to best go about finding and getting in contact with good, U.S.A. based wholesalers that will work with drop-shippers.
Any help is appreciated!

And I think for whole sale store, you should make the store more user friendly, so that the customers can easy add many items in bulk to the Cart and make his order all at one time. And to do that I would suggest to use the Quick Order app to improve your Sales.
I am in the same position as you are Brandon. I've been researching many different drop-shipping companies for US made products and have reached out to various American companies. So far I have gotten one response.
Where can I find good quality American made camping supplies?
