Consumer Goods
Vineyard Vines at North Hills Mall

From clothing to jewelry and accessories, along with food, coffee and of course beer, Raleigh is home to a growing number of consumer goods companies, both for corporate and design headquarters as well as production. Given North Carolina’s long-standing traditions in the textile industry, it makes sense that Raleigh would have a notable roster of apparel companies. Peter Millar, an exclusive brand of luxury sportswear sold throughout the world, is a Raleigh-born company that chose to locate its corporate, marketing and design offices in Pilot Mill, a historic, 120 year-old structure that was, naturally, a textile mill.  Another apparel company that has found success is Raleigh Denim, maker of handmade jeans and fashion apparel with production operations and a retail shop, The Curatory, located in Raleigh’s warehouse district. Lumina Clothing Company and High Cotton Ties, producing original apparel and neckwear, have also located their retail operations in downtown Raleigh. Raleigh is home to original handmade bags from Stitch and Lisa Stewart Designs, original jewelry and accessories by Moon & Lola, chocolates from Videri Chocolate FactoryEscazu Artisan Chocolates and Elemental Chocolates, coffee from Larry’s Beans and a growing number of craft beers from Lone Rider, Raleigh BrewingBig Boss and others. Entrepreneurism in Raleigh goes beyond science and technology, as opportunities for local consumer brands continues to expand. 

Part of the other beauty of being in Raleigh is that we don't have the overhead of companies that are based in New York. Products cost X, you need to sell them for Y, and it’s the costs in between that makes the difference. Because we're here and we have a controlled cost structure we're able deliver, I would argue, the finest quality clothes made at the best price.  That's part of our success model."

-Scott Mahoney, Peter Millar
