Northville, MI (June 11, 2009) – Downtown Northville has announced they will partner with Buy Michigan Now to be the host location for “Buy Michigan Week” July 27-August 2. The weeklong festivities will include various Michigan entertainment, educational seminars and Michigan-made products.
Launched in 2007 by Lisa Diggs, Buy Michigan Now is a statewide initiative to inform, educate and encourage Michiganders, organizations and consumers alike, to support the local economy by purchasing products and services made in Michigan and from Michigan-based companies.
“The Buy Michigan Now campaign is about heightening awareness and revitalizing our state’s economy one product, one purchase, and one business at a time. We are very excited to be working with Northville to celebrate Buy Michigan Week. Their vibrant art, restaurant, and retail community is representative of great towns all over the state, and provides an ideal showcase for the bright spots in Michigan’s blossoming new economy,” said Lisa Diggs.
The Buy Michigan Now initiative is further enhanced by the official proclamation from Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm stating that the week of July 27, 2009 is Buy Michigan Week in Michigan. In the proclamation, Governor Granholm states her support of the initiative “I encourage all residents of this state to take advantage of the many great products and services that the state of Michigan has to offer by buying Michigan first.”
“Northville is excited to host the Buy Michigan Week festival. This event will highlight many wonderful products, services, events and industries available in Michigan. Partnering with the Buy Michigan Now campaign is the perfect fit as we continue our own efforts to support local merchants and the local economy,” added Lori Ward, director of the Northville Downtown Development Authority.
