Darn It!

Darn It! Inc. is a company that has thrived because of  -- rather than in spite of -- the overseas manufacturing that has put so many American textile companies out of business.

As part of our series “One Square Mile: New Bedford,” Darn It! founder and president Jeff Glassman told RIPR's Dave Fallon what the company does, how it came to be, and why he's optimistic about New Bedford.

Today, Rhode Island Public Radio kicks off a week-long series we call `One Square Mile’ where we focus  on one of Rhode Island’s communities. This week the focus is Burrillville. RIPR political analyst Scott MacKay brings us the story of Austin T. Levy, an unconventional industrialist, who built up one of the mill villages that now make up one of Burrillville’s central neighborhoods.
