About GRMA & Shop Local Raleigh:
The Greater Raleigh Merchants Association (GRMA) is a non-profit organization that has been a single effective voice for small business and merchants since 1940. Comprised of business owners, entrepreneurs, merchants and other professionals in the Raleigh area, GRMA promotes an environment of communication, cooperation and support for local businesses.
In 2009 GRMA launched Shop Local Raleigh (SLR). SLR is all about promoting and supporting locally-owned, independent businesses. It’s about making hard-earned money go further, fueling the local economy, and helping to preserve the unique character of Raleigh.
