Some are expansions of Raleigh businesses, such as Trellis Beauty expanding from its Lafayette Village location and Medicine Mama's Farmacy expanding from Hillsborough Street. Some are the first storefronts for mobile businesses, such as Raleigh's Meat and Graze, Buzzy Bakes and Bulkogi. See a full list here, and look for individual opening dates from these vendors.
