Buy Nearby Weekend
Friday, October 4, 2019
Local retail businesses will celebrate Buy Nearby Weekend on October 4-6th, offering special merchandise or sales and the chance for lucky shoppers to win a $100 gift card by posting a photo while shopping local with the #buynearbymi & #buynearbycvx hashtag.
It’s all part of the Michigan Retailers Association’s (MRA) year-round Buy Nearby campaign that encourages shoppers to support their communities by spending their dollars locally.

Many stores will offer special promotions as a thank you to supportive customers. As an extra incentive to buy nearby, one shopper will win a $100 gift card. All you need to do is take a selfie shopping at a local store or a photo of your purchase during the weekend; post it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #buynearbymi & #buynearbycvx and you’re automatically entered. The winner will be chosen the following week in a random drawing. (Must be 18 or older to win; be sure your post is “public”).
