Are you a local business owner? Are you having to compete with large corporations, big box stores and national chains? Do you have limited advertising dollars to reach your customers?

Shop Local Raleigh is all about promoting & supporting locally-owned, independent businesses. It’s about making your hard-earned money go further, fueling the local economy, & helping to preserve the unique character of Raleigh.
