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."
By Amy Drumm, MRA Vice President, Government Affairs
In the first week of October, the House and Senate quickly moved legislation that MRA has been working on to keep food and beverages tax-free at the local level.
