Keeping Durham Local.
How Did This Get Started?
The concept of Shop Durham really begin with our sister site, Best of the Bull. It’s local blog about the city of Durham. Writing only about businesses, organizations, etc. that were founded here in Durham.
The site grew quickly in popularity simply because we were sharing what makes Durham, well, Durham. Great people and great local businesses.
We wondered how we could take it a step further and encourage locals to support the homegrown businesses that keep Durham unique. Enter, Shop Durham!
I've never heard of Shop Durham before. How long have you been doing this?
We launched Shop Durham in 2017 with nothing more than a love for the great city of Durham and its unique local businesses. It’s our hope that we can help build a better local community and help keep Durham unique.
How can my local business become a Shop Durham member?
Where can I get a Shop Durham card?
You can get one online right now and it will get to you in just 2-3 days.
The Shop Durham card is your key to Durham. Whether you’ve lived here all your life, just becoming acquainted with the city, or if you’re looking to visit or relocate. We hope it inspires you to visit local businesses that you may not have heard of otherwise!
We hope you enjoy the card and discover something about Durham that is new to you.
