DTR Independent Shops - unique independent retail shopping in downtown raleigh, north carolina

 

 

Hey local peeps: I've personally been working on this for over a year so I'm particularly excited to share the official launch of @DTRIndependentShops with you!⠀


Port of Raleigh has joined forces with our local independent retail community to create an easy and enjoyable resource for discovering unique stores in Downtown Raleigh. This means a platform exclusively by and for independent retailers in our neighborhood; website launches today and printed walking (or dancing) maps to follow.⠀

Head over to DTRindependentShops.com to see who our founding members are and plan your next visit ... we have a lot of #ShopSmall gems!⠀

We're celebrating the launch TONIGHT during #3rdThursdayDTR from 6-9pm 🎉 ICYMI: 3rd Thursday is our new monthly shopping event where participating #DTRindependentShops stay open late for special in-store happenings and sips & snacks while you shop.⠀

We can’t wait to see you and thank you in person (time and time again) for shopping with us and engaging in the community through your local independent retailers. Last but not least, a BIG thank you to Native State Design for the branding and then some!

An often overlooked item in many homes is the step ladder. While there are plenty of options on the market for purely functional purposes (the kind that tend to be stored away and out of sight), we like to think “why not make it artful and so good looking that you’ll want to keep it out in your living spaces, leading to more use and overall enjoyment?”. That’s why we love the Lucano Step Ladders by Hasegawa.


Designed in Japan, the Lucano Step Ladders pack quite the punch: simple design, quality materials, solid construction with fluid movement and secure and easy everyday use. They are made of lightweight aluminum and come a variety of colors, perfect for complementing any existing kitchen, library, wardrobe closet, or office style and decor. A fun (and very convenient) design element is that they can stand upright on their own, no need to rest or lay them against a wall. You can literally display your ladder in the center of a room as a piece of art … in fact, we highly encourage that!


We’re not the only ones who love the Lucano Step Ladders; this sleek and practical contemporary design has won awards from German Good Design, Japanese Good Design, and Red Dot Awards.


It brings us so much joy to share them with you in our downtown Raleigh store and here in our webshop. Are you ready to love your step ladder and reach those high shelves in style?
