Putting Michigan First in Royal Oak

Hometown Life

Pink Pump, with a store in Royal Oak, is “putting Michigan first” and supporting the communities in which they operate a brick and mortar business.

This summer, Pink Pump stores will be selling limited edition T-shirts unique to each store location to help that particular zip code's school district. Coordinating zip codes (48009, 48301, 48067, 48104) will be printed on each shirt so that you can represent you city and support a cause. For each T-shirt purchased, Pink Pump will donate $10 to the public school district of the corresponding city.

This will lead up to the Special Edition Detroit tee shirts that will be sold at all locations to support Detroit Public Schools.

What a scream

Ice cream loving Kroger customers can beat the heat and win free ice cream for a year as part of Kroger's expanded “From Michigan. For Michigan.” program. Kroger is teaming up with Hudsonville Creamery & Ice Cream Company, based in Holland, to sponsor the contest during National Ice Cream Month, which continues through July, which is National Ice Cream Month.

Customers may register online to win one free 56 oz. container of ice cream each week for a year at www.WinWithKroger.com. Participants must have a Kroger Plus card and must fill out the online questionnaire to register, with all participants eligible to win only once. Consumers who do not have a Kroger Plus card may apply for a card at any Kroger location.

Building on the success of its 2009 “Michigan-Grown Fresh” campaign, Kroger's Michigan Division is expanding the “From Michigan. For Michigan.” program to offer Michigan-raised and processed products in its stores during 2010.
