As the newest owners of Uptown Cheapskate, Lendie and Mike Smith, are thrilled to bring this concept to Richardson.  The team first became interested in owning an Uptown Cheapskate store in Richardson after owning and operating two other stores in Allen, one the sister company of Uptown Cheapskate, Kid to Kid. The other Uptown Cheapskate Allen. Mike and Lendie said when asked about why they decided to open a store in Richardson, “Richardson is a community of opportunity, filled with great people and great businesses.  There is an opportunity in education, career, family living, and we love being a part of that.”
