Join Shop Durham

At Shop Durham, our mission is pretty simple: To help people discover the best local spots in town. The program helps motivate customers to get out and support the unique local businesses in Durham in exchange for an exclusive discount that we like to call a reward.

We’ll help put your business in front of thousands of Durham residents and businesses using our extensive social media platforms, website, newsletter, local partners, sponsors, and Guides to Durham series.

On top of retail sales, cards are distributed to numerous apartment complexes, hotels, and local events throughout Durham. Thousands of local residents and visitors carry this card in their wallet. Add your business so they can discover you.
