Buy Nearby Weekend - October 1st and 2nd.

Come visit Great Lakes Artworks on October 1st or 2nd, during MRAs
Buy Nearby Campaign. This two-day event means a chance to support new start-ups as well as retailers that have been a fixture for many years.

If Michigan residents make sure to buy from retailers in Michigan, rather than from out-of-state sellers that don’t invest in the state, the state economy would grow and new jobs would be created. More than 866,000 jobs statewide are directly dependent on retail sales.
