Buy Nearby Weekend Focuses on Promoting Local Retailers

This coming Saturday 10/7 and Sunday 10/8 is Buy Nearby Weekend, sponsored by the Michigan Retailers Association.

The association says, “Retail businesses across the state will celebrate Buy Nearby Weekend this Saturday and Sunday, offering special merchandise or sales and the chance for one lucky shopper to win $500 by posting a photo while buying nearby with the #buynearbymi hashtag. It’s all part of the Michigan Retailers Association’s (MRA) year-round Buy Nearby campaign that encourages shoppers to support their local communities and state economy by buying from retailers in Michigan.”

“One in four jobs in Michigan depends on the retail industry,” said James P. Hallan, MRA president and CEO. “On average, 50 cents of every dollar spent in a retail business in Michigan stays in the community and helps grow the Michigan economy. Those are powerful reasons to help strengthen our community by keeping our shopping dollars in the Mitten.”

Additional information about the Buy Nearby campaign is available at and You also can follow the campaign on Twitter @buynearbymi and on Instagram @mibuynearby.
