Buy Michigan Now Festival
Argent Tape and Label, Inc. recently sponsored and exhibited at the Buy Michigan Now Festival in Northville, Michigan. The Buy Michigan Now Festival is a weekend celebration of the state’s annual Buy Michigan Week. The festival included tasty treats, street vendors, live music, children’s activities and many guests all looking at Michigan-based or Michigan-made products.
The Buy Michigan Now campaign started in 2008 as a statewide campaign designed to revitalize the Michigan economy. There is an enormous amount of products that are grown, manufactured, or distributed by Michigan-based companies and the festival and campaign helps support them.
Since the campaign started, many stores have grown their Michigan-based products and decided to highlight them in the aisles. For example, Busch’s Fresh Food Market has a program they call ‘Growing Home,’ about growing something greater for the local entrepreneurs, farmers and communities by offering thousands of local Michigan products. It is a program of which they are very proud as they, too, are a Michigan born and raised store.
