Downtown Apex is a Great Triangle NC Destination for
Unique Dining, Shops, Boutiques, Services, and Festivals
What’s Happening November and December 2018 in Downtown ApexThe last two months of the year are definitely some of the most fun and enjoyable in #DowntownApexNC. November brings delightfully cool weather and fall colors, and is a great time to shop and dine in Downtown Apex before the busy holiday season. But don’t stop there – the holiday season is also a great time to shop #DowntownApexNC for unique gifts. There’s plenty to find in a variety of unique local shops, and a great lunch or dinner can be had right here as well. Also, don’t forget the wide array of personal and professional services businesses located in Downtown Apex, from insurance and investments to hair salons to lawyers.
Small Business Saturday is the day to think outside the big box and #ShopSmallApex for the holidays. Come downtown on Saturday November 24 for some great shopping and dining. You could even just skip “Black Friday” altogether in 2018, do something more fun, park the car just once (hassle-free!), and shop and dine small and close to home in Downtown Apex!
