Grand Rapids Area Winter Buy Local Initiative Forms


Small Business Intake Form
Suppliers/Retailers: Do you have a product or service that you'd like to offer buyers who may be looking to support local businesses during this challenging time?  Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC), along with a regional partner group*, would like to connect you with corporate purchasers looking for holiday/employee appreciation/etc. gifts for staff, or other individual buyers looking to support local businesses.
This Regional Buy Local initiative will provide an alternative revenue opportunity and contribute to local economic recovery efforts for Grand Rapids Area businesses in Ionia, Kent, Montcalm and Ottawa counties while COVID-19 continues impacting operations.  If suppliers need logistical support, a list of providers will be shared for potential partnership opportunities.
After the supplier intake form has been reviewed, businesses will be added to a list with product/service offerings that will be shared with buyers.  
*City of Grand Rapids, Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc, Experience Grand Rapids, Local First, The Right Place, Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce, Asian Pacific American Chamber of Commerce, Grand Rapids Area Black Businesses, and the West Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
