Chamber Chatter!


Welcome to the new "Chamber Chatter"! Our goal is to help inform you of events and happenings around town, and keep us all connected during our busy workdays. We welcome your feedback, and as always, look forward to helping your business succeed.

Reach New Customers EFFORTLESSLY!
Welcome Baskets!
When a new person moves into town, they need to learn the lay of the land. Where to shop, where to get the car fixed, who to call for home repairs, and more. Last year we gave away 150 baskets to new residents. In fact, people spend more money in the first two years of new home ownership than any other time. 

Reach new movers by putting your promotional product, business flyers, coupons, or informational items in our "Welcome to Richmond" basket! Seeking materials now for the delivery of baskets during the winter months. 

We have a lot of fun receiving items, assembling the baskets and delivering to new residents. So get in on the fun and drop off items for us to include in the next set of baskets to be delivered in town. 
Local Apple Orchards and Cider Mills Featured in Article
There are plenty of things to enjoy during fall in Michigan from apple picking to pumpkin pies and leaf piles. But, of course, you can't miss the star of the show-the delicious cider pressed right on the shores of the Wolverine State. While there are dozens of ciders to choose from, these top thirty offer the most delicious drinks, the best pastries and the most fun in the state!
