What is Shop/Dine Richardson?

Richardson continues to grow at an exponential rate thanks to an influx of new businesses and restaurants. As such, the Chamber has developed Shop/Dine Richardson, a new program aimed at connecting Richardson’s communities to the quality products, services, and restaurants available from Chamber businesses.

Shop/Dine Richardson is the best way to discover local and neighborhood offerings. Not only will you have a great time at these businesses, but will also be helping the City’s economy. Studies show that when shopping at small businesses, 48 percent of your dollars stay local, compared to 14 percent at chain stores. So check out our full listing of Chamber restaurants and businesses, and enjoy the diversity of the City of Richardson. Though ad placement is only for Chamber business members, we enthusiastically invite anyone to sign up to receive the email.

Under 'Member directory' and either 'Restaurants' or 'Retail.'
To search all Richardson restaurants by cuisine, visit the City of Richardson's restaurant page.

For restaurants/retailers:

How does it work?

If you are a Chamber member, you are eligible to run an ad in the weekly Friday email. Your email will be part of a rotation of other Chamber businesses who have signed up for the program. We'll try to let you know right before your ad runs, but, hey, our intern in the back sometimes gets busy with finals. Thus, you might want to make it somewhat generic. Also, make sure your ad/business is somewhat targeted to a broader audience.

When will my ad run?

If you have a preference of when you would like your ad to run, please input that information on the form below.

Please understand that we have many Chamber businesses want to run their ads. Your ad will be put into a rotation based on the order we received ads. Everyone will get a turn.

We run ads in the order they are received, or whoever is up next in the rotation.

How big can my ad be?

If you are designing your own ad, we are somewhat flexible with sizing, but we do recommend all ads aim for 3 inches tall by 4 inches wide (300x400 pixels).

What if I don’t have a graphic designer?

That’s alright. We’ll help you design a simple ad. Just upload your logo and up to 30 words to go on the ad. When possible, we will contact you for a review of your completed ad, as long as you are timely in your response. We'll charge you $50 for each ad we design for you.
