Buy Michigan Now™ was started by Michigan native, Lisa Diggs. The purpose of the Buy Michigan Now campaign is to have people consider buying products and services from Michigan companies. When we spend our dollars at home, we support our neighbors and friends and help our state remain strong. Here is an excerpt from Buy Michigan Now™. Please visit the site and show your support to consider Michigan businesses first.
The idea behind Buy Michigan Now™ is to challenge supporters of the state to factor Michigan into our buying decisions. When possible, buy locally. We do realize that there are some products and services that do not come from Michigan. (Pineapples and mountain-climbing expeditions leap to mind.) That said, an enormous amount of products are grown, manufactured, or distributed by Michigan-based businesses. Thus, when making any purchasing decision, we encourage you to Think Michigan First! If the quality, availability, and price meet with your needs, spend your money within our state.
