New Golden LEAF Grant Project to Support Wood Shops and Factories Grow Sales to Retail Stores
The Golden LEAF Foundation of North Carolina is a sponsor of economic benefit activities across North Carolina that supports the growth of local businesses. This project works in the western fifty counties directly with wood shops and factories to develop wooden products for the wholesale furniture manufacturing industry from January 2014 to June 2015. Retail buyers will be also be included in the project that will offer connections to the wood shops.
This project is sponsored by the Golden LEAF Foundation to promote a wide economic boost to the North Carolina economy by working with hundreds of wood shops to market locally made wood products to the state's retail stores selling furniture and home furnishings
