Fuquay-Varina, NC? For many of our fans we are pretty certain you have never heard of this “use to be” small community in NC. Located twenty miles south of Raleigh, NC this bedroom community has grown from one of miles and miles of tobacco fields to now a booming hub for the Shop Local Movement. The “Downtown” is bustling with new businesses and the community is now heading downtown for many of their social gatherings.
While Naomi was talking with a downtown business owner the idea of a Pop Up shop entered the conversation. No real plan but a “what if”. Storeowner, Heather Allen of Family Optical was relocating to a new space and is always looking for outside the box ideas. Being great friends, Heather and I decided to join forces and share one space. We know that having two totally different concepts will help leverage two totally different customers. The hope is when someone comes into the space for one of the stores that they will quickly learn that the other store is a great choice for them too!
Heather and I plan to open the doors on October 1, 2015 at 121 Raleigh Street, Fuquay-Varina, NC. Heather will work in the space since I am still busy with my work as the NC Main Street Manager for Fuquay-Varina.
So, in the end … Why downtown Fuquay-Varina? The answer is very simple for me. There is no other place as awesome as Fuquay-Varina. Our DOWNTOWN? Well, come hang out and you will understand ….
