The Local Squirrel

Behind the Name

Raleigh is the "City of Oaks” and Squirrels live in Oak Trees. We gather and hunt for our products and makers like a squirrel gathers its nuts. And finally like most college campuses Meredith College is home to some pretty fearless squirrels, literally. I once saw one on a girl’s backpack! So our name is a reference to where we come from, our mission with our products and makers, and a homage to where it all began.
