Ugh... sorry. Pretty much a wasteland here as far as I know. Someone else might know more. A few of the shops that I've been to have plants but they are the usual Florida Aquatic Nursery plants that everyone has. I haven't been to every place though. Hopefully others will reply.

Can't help with the Raleigh location but when I lived in Asheville, there was a fairly large store sort of NW downtown. I wanna say around Patton ave?? There was also a much smaller but very friendly store off of sweeten creek.
Both probably shut their doors by now. I think that was almost 10 years ago.

By the way, the mid point of the two (Winston-Salem and Greensboro)...don't bother stopping. Nothing to see here either.

Know this is a few months old but if anybody else is looking in Raleigh area there is the Fishroom. One in Cary and one off capital Blvd. I prefer the Cary one
