We are community driven
The unique local content found on DiscoverRichardson.com is for Richardson, about Richardson and by Richardson. It has been recognized as an effective economic development tool by community partners, businesses and residents alike.
In an effort to provide a fresh and relevant product, the publications and website have undergone several updates. Both editorial and design considerations have been implemented to keep DiscoverRichardson.com progressive and effective.
We now have a website that adds an enhanced directory of businesses and still has great community events and info. The goal is to connect our readers with opportunities to shop Richardson and support local businesses.
1. Protect Richardson’s Local Character and Prosperity
Richardson is unique in its character and local business environment. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain our local diversity and distinct culture.
2. Community Well-Being
Richardson owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes.
3. Local Decision Making
Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.
4. Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy
Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.
