MIRA, which serves as “The voice for the food, beverage and petroleum industries” is the premier multi-state trade association representing thousands of independent retailers operating in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and the rest of the Midwest.
MIRA stands on “Seven Pillars of Service”, which are: business, government relations, vendor programs, compliance, networking, community outreach, and the Midwest Independent Retailers Foundation.
Our membership base includes retailers, suppliers and vendors who own or service supermarkets, liquor stores, chain stores, drug stores, specialty markets, convenience stores, service stations and auto repair facilities. Equally active in MIRA are the wide range of brokers, distributors, suppliers and manufacturers. Additionally, service companies such as insurance, banking, media, electronics, refrigeration, security, etc. also make up the membership of MIRA. MIRA is truly representative of the food, beverage and petroleum industries.
As the association has grown in numbers, it has afforded MIRA the negotiating power to provide members with discounts on numerous financial benefits that they normally would not be able to take advantage of on their own. Benefits such as coupon redemption service, rebate programs, office supply programs, financial planning services, workers compensation insurance and many more to help members save money!
MIRA maintains its Executive Offices in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
