Wednesday – October 20th
$20 on the 20th… presented by Shop Local Raleigh$20-on-the-20th
The benefits of “$20 on the 20th” reach across the City of Raleigh, Wake County and the State of North Carolina. When shoppers spend more dollars at locally owned and operated businesses, significantly more money re-circulates in our local economy. Local businesses, the largest employer nationally, provide the most new jobs to residents and produce more income.

Thursday – October 21st
Apex Chamber of Commerce’s Cupcakes and Cashmere free event beginning at 6:30 p.m. Grab a friend for a fun night out exploring the newest trends and styles in clothing, handbags, jewelry, home décor, hair, makeup and skin care at more than 20 participating local boutiques and shops up and down Salem Street. The evening will begin at the Chamber Depot at 220 N. Salem St. in downtown Apex. For more information, visit
