It's official -- as our Founding Owner drive came to a close on October 31, we've reached our goal. Durham Central Market officially has over 300 (301 to be exact) Founding Owners. Many, many thanks (and congratulations!) to everyone out there who believed in this venture enough. Durham Central Market is off to an excellent start, and you're a big reason why!
Two weeks ago yesterday Durham Central Market held its Founding Owners' Celebration at the Trotter Building on Geer Street in the Central Park area. The venue was great and I was so energized to be able to put faces to the growing number of names on DCM's ownership rolls.
