Made in Michigan Show
May 10-11 in Mt. Clemens
Downtown Mount Clemens will host its second annual Made in Michigan Show on May 10-11.
This event will exclusively showcase products and goods that are made, grown, assembled, or manufactured in Michigan.
The goal of the Made in Michigan Show is to inform, educate, and encourage Michiganders, organizations, and consumers alike, to support the local economy by purchasing products made in Michigan and from Michigan-based companies and vendors.
Pride, as well as environmental and economical consciousness, is fueling the popularity and interest in Michigan Made goods. Consumers realize their dollars spent locally are recirculated through the local economy supporting new jobs and investment in Michigan.
Also, by shortening the supply chain, Michigan made products greatly reduce the energy required to bring items to market.
Downtown Mount Clemens is comprised mainly of small independent businesses, and the Made In Michigan show reinforces the ongoing efforts to expand and strengthen the local economy.
Various studies have shown that shopping locally at independently owned businesses retains up to 73 percent of the dollars spent in the local economy versus shopping at non-locally owned businesses where only 43 percent of the purchase price stays in the local economy.
The Mount Clemens Made in Michigan Show will be set up in historic Downtown Mount Clemens on Macomb Place between Walnut and Pine streets. Hours are Friday, May 10 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
