Buy Nearby is a permanent, year-round, feel-good program designed to promote Michigan retail businesses and communities. It’s a call to action, a symbol of pride and celebration, a rallying cry across Michigan and an economic driver for our state. Each year, Michigan celebrates the Buy Nearby campaign on the first weekend in October, "I Buy Nearby Weekend."
LANSING – Michigan Grocers Association and Michigan Retailers Association are proud to announce that they are combining operations, effective January 1, 2018. Michigan Grocers will become a division of Michigan Retailers Association.
