“The Buy Michigan Now campaign is dedicated to heightening awareness and revitalizing our state’s economy one product, one purchase, and one person at a time.  I am delighted to be returning to Northville once again to celebrate Buy Michigan Week.  It is a charming town, filled with locally-owned businesses, and has great proximity to the Detroit area, Ann Arbor, and even Lansing. That makes it an ideal place to showcase businesses, products, art and entertainment from around the state,” said Lisa Diggs.
The weekend celebration is designed to coincide with “Buy Michigan Week,” which focuses extra attention on Michigan-based businesses and locally-produced merchandise to help stimulate the economy. This is also the second year for Buy Michigan Week, which will start on Monday, August 2 and run through Sunday, August 8.
