CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI (May 16, 2024) — Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) is partnering with 12 community businesses in Ann Arbor and Saline to present Shop Local, Bank Local events from May 21 – June 8. As an organization strongly rooted in giving back to the communities it serves, MSGCU teamed up with local businesses to support its neighbors and introduce the credit union to the community.

MSGCU invites all community members to attend the events to support local retailers and participate in fun games to win a variety of prizes. Local residents can visit participating Ann Arbor and Saline businesses during their specific event date and time to shop and play games for the chance to win. MSGCU is awarding over $25,000 in prizes throughout the events. During each event, community members could win a $500 MSGCU Certificate of Deposit, a $100 deposit into any MSGCU account, one of many local business gift cards, or MSGCU swag. Community members can also visit the Ann Arbor and Saline branches between May 20 and June 15 for the chance to win a $1,500 MSGCU Certificate of Deposit. Visit for complete details.

“MSGCU recently opened branch offices in Ann Arbor and Saline, and our Shop Local, Bank Local events allow us to support businesses in the communities we serve,” said Steve Brewer, MSGCU President/CEO. “When we shop local, 68 cents out of every dollar stays in the local community, compared to just 30 to 40 cents per dollar for national retailers. Our Shop Local, Bank Local initiative helps keep more money in our local economy to support small business owners.”
