The Cotton Company is an amazing shopping destination in historic, downtown Wake Forest NC that houses over 50 unique specialty shops offering one of a kind gifts for all! They ranked in the Top 10 Raleigh Best Shopping Malls & Centers and it was well-deserved! In 2000, the W.W. Holding Cotton Exchange Warehouse was purchased with a vision for transformation. The building was renovated in phases and the end result is truly a testament to ingenuity, foresight and determination. The Cotton Company houses upscale, boutique-styled shopping in a casual yet refined environment. There are unique pieces offered by local artisans, one of a kind gifts and stunning home decor items available.
In addition to the retail items The Cotton Company also houses personal local artist’s studios. Not only will you be able to view and purchase their work but also personally meet them to ask questions.
The second level hosts private parties, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and more. I personally have attended a wedding reception at The Event Gallery and I can tell you first hand that they leave no details overlooked. First rate and an amazing atmosphere.
The Holiday Open House at The Cotton Company will be held November 5 – 7!!
There will be several door prizes including a GRAND PRIZE of a $250.00 gift card, complimentary refreshments, amazing product samples AND…..are you ready for this?? Word has it that SANTA will be making his first appearance of the season!!! He will be meeting and greeting, you know networking :), and will even be taking photographs! I know, right?? Pictures with Santa are free but he does ask that you make a donation to the Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment. If you are wanting to be sure to get a glimpse of Santa then you will need to be at The Cotton Company either November 5th or November 6th from 10am – 12pm either day. He has a pretty hectic schedule this year so be sure to thank him for graciously making an appearance!
