In North Carolina, Google gave that distinction to Cary for the high percentage of small businesses that leverage the Internet to connect with customers. Being an eCity won’t earn Cary cash prizes or awards, but it does earn the mayor a congratulatory phone call from Google and some hefty bragging rights.</p> Tue, 20 Aug 2013 20:52:25 +0000 Laura Candler 21085 at http://wunc.org Google Names Cary The Leading NC City For Online Business
