Growing in North Carolina


Growing in North Carolina
Relay opened its doors in the Triangle 32 days ago with three pickup locations. Thanks to an impressive response from customers to help spread the good news, as well as an on-the-ground sales team effort, that launch proved a momentous success on all counts.
