What is Buy Nearby?

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.

Buy Nearby Weekend on October 5-7

Each year, Michigan celebrates the year-round Buy Nearby campaign on the first weekend in October. For 2018, that’s October 5-7. Many retail businesses offer special merchandise or sales, and some communities host their own festivities to attract shoppers. Shoppers can “get caught” shopping at stores in Michigan by sharing photos via our social media channels.
