Each year, Michigan celebrates the Buy Nearby campaign on the first full weekend in October. This year Buy Nearby Weekend falls on October 7 and 8 – it’s the perfect reason to spend a fall weekend browsing boutiques and other retail stores. Many retail businesses offer special merchandise or sales that weekend, and some communities host their own festivities to attract shoppers.
We want to see you buy nearby and support Michigan’s economy! That’s why – back by popular demand – Buy Nearby Weekend is hosting a PHOTO CONTEST! It’s easy to enter, and the winner takes home a $500 gift card.
Photo contest eligibility:
- Share at least one photo of you shopping during Buy Nearby Weekend (Oct. 7 and 8) on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram
- Include the hashtag #buynearbymi in your post.
See? It’s simple! The photo contest winner will be selected at random and announced on our social media pages within a few days after Buy Nearby Weekend concludes. Be sure to check your apps for a message from us to see if you won!
