-- Gift-giving in downtown Raleigh just became much easier.

Mayor Nancy McFarlane announced Wednesday the Shop Downtown Raleigh gift card program sponsored by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, set to launch on Friday.

“I’m very excited,” McFarlane said. “There’s always people you work with, and you want to give gifts to. They’ll be able to use it for lunch and shopping.”
