Port of Raleigh Decorative Retailer Now Open in the L Building

Port of Raleigh, a design-driven home and lifestyle accessories store, opened its doors to the public on Saturday, December 5, 2015. Nestled on the edge of the Warehouse District at The L, Port of Raleigh is a new retail concept in the Triangle with a range of modern home furnishings and lifestyle accessories from around the world. Neighbors in the Warehouse District have welcomed owner Ana Maria Muñoz and the retail space with enthusiasm.

“We’re very excited Port of Raleigh is bringing its unique vision of home décor and style to the Warehouse District,” said Chris Heavener, General Manager of Videri Chocolate Factory. “This bodes well for the future of retail in our neighborhood.”

Coming from an international background and living abroad in London and Kuala Lumpur, Muñoz wanted to curate smart, functional designs from abroad to share them with the Downtown Raleigh community. “I love living downtown and I believe in downtown. I didn’t for a second consider opening the store anywhere else,” said Muñoz. “I want to invest in my community and share my passion for simple, beautiful and useful design through the store.”

Now that Port of Raleigh has settled into the neighborhood, Muñoz will host a Grand Opening party to officially announce that the Port’s doors are open. Whiskey Kitchen, opening in Nash Square in the near future, will provide the cocktails for the evening.
