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.
