Boutique Blowout is back for Round 3 and you’re invited!
The Boutique Blowout will feature local stores selling off their excess inventory at deeply discounted prices.
We will set up each boutique in their very own “booth space” which will allow you to have full control of your inventory and handle transactions.
Shop Local Raleigh will advertise this event to the public through television ads, print ads, online promotion, and social media, sell tickets and cover overhead costs, handle set up and breakdown and coordinate general event management and layout.
We would like to invite you to participate in the event and help us, help promote you! We know there are a ton of fashionistas out there and we want to help them find you!

SLR Members- Advertise to shoppers:
We want to give you the opportunity to advertise your business to consumers at the Boutique Blowout. We are offering to allow SLR/GRMA members to have a coupon, a sample of something, or anything creative you can think that will help advertise your business to be placed in the VIP bags.
We have limited the bags to the first 250 shoppers. If you would like to add a promo item in the VIP bag, we ask that you provide 250 samples/coupons by Friday, July 10, to SLR, at our office, 410 N. Boylan Ave, Raleigh.
Shop Local Raleigh will assemble all of the items in the bags and will distribute to all VIP attendees!
Want to help volunteer on the 17th? We will utilize volunteers to help with ticket sales, information on Shop Local Raleigh, helping manage dressing rooms and more. Email us if you would like to volunteer!
