Michigan Retailers Association has designed several signs that you can download for free and use in your store. You can find the signs on the website by typing in this url: Simply click on the link below each sign. A large image of the poster will come up, which you can print out and use in your store. They are 8.5” x 11” and print just fine in black and white if you don’t have a color printer. If you have any ideas for signs that you need, email and we’ll see if we can come up with a brilliant idea for you!

The annual scholarship competition has ended for the 2020-21 academic year. Winners will be notified mid-June by letter and email and an official announcement will come in the August edition of the Michigan Retailer and on our website.  A third-party administrator, International Scholarship and Tuition Services, selected the winners. MRA received 168 applications; 24 scholarships will be awarded, ranging from $1,000 to $1,500.  The scholarships are funded by the Michigan Retailers Foundation from earnings on tax-deductible contributions from MRA members and other generous donors. The program funds scholarships for high school seniors and college freshmen, sophomores and juniors who are dependent sons and daughters of owners of MRA member businesses, or of full-time employees of MRA-members. Also eligible are part-time employees of MRA member businesses who are full-time students. The next scholarship round begins Jan. 1, 2021.
