Welcome to the band of locals
You are invited to join the “Band of Locals”, get on the “band wagon” and “band together” with the business community! We are selling embossed bands (bracelets and/or key-chains) that say “Band of Locals”, to businesses who want to be a part of the “shop local” theme.
These bands will be sold at the Old Pioneer Store 118 N Michigan Ave, Big Rapids, MI 49307 and Mecosta County Convention & Visitors Bureau 127 S State St, Big Rapids, MI 49307!. We require that you purchase a minimum 5 bands or key chains at $10.00 each that you sell to your customers to receive discounts from participating Band of Locals members. Or give them away.
We suggest that if you don’t have discounts or specials to offer, that you purchase these bands to give to your “employee of the month” or other recognition programs you may have for your employees or even for some of your best customers!
