Retailers Launch Campaign to Promote Buying Local

Posted: Updated:

The Michigan Retailers Associated is launching a campaign called Buy Nearby, promoting buying local. It's as simple as making purchases in Michigan stores.

The association hopes to boost local economy with the campaign. Businesses say  by buying nearby you are putting money back into your local economy and keeping people in your community employed.

You also might see some buy nearby stickers starting to appear in store windows.

9 and 10's Alyssa Gambla talked to some Traverse City businesses to see what this campaign is all about.
