Cary, NC – Twenty cities may not seem like a “short” list but for the municipalities listed as finalists for the location of Amazon’s new North American headquarters, the competition feels much realer now than it did a month ago. Included on that list of finalists is the Raleigh metropolitan area, including Cary.
