Jewelry, accessory and gift shop The Local Squirrel opens next week in Cameron Village. The shop’s name is a nod to Raleigh’s status as the City of Oaks, and to the nearly domesticated squirrels inhabiting the campus of Meredith College, owner Rachael Pusateri’s alma mater. As that naming suggests, the store has a strong local focus, with products from local companies among its mix. The store opens May 4 at 2012 Cameron St.
