What is Buy Nearby?
The Buy Nearby program was created by the Michigan Retailers Association in 2013 to encourage people to shop at their local stores. The campaign promotes Michigan retail businesses and educates consumers on why it’s so vital to keep our shopping dollars in Michigan. If Michiganders redirected 10% of their estimated $23.7 billion in out-of-state e-commerce, Michigan would gain $1.9 billion billion in increased economic activity. Downtown Midland will be participating in Buy Nearby! Come support your favorite local stores.
