What Bert Has To Say About Winston-Salem Metro Area

Until recently, Winston-Salem and High Point were associated with nearby Greensboro to form one metro area. The three cities are sometimes referred to as the Piedmont Triad. In comparison to the state’s better-known triad of Raleigh–Durham–Chapel Hill, the economy and lifestyle is more industrial and working-class, although there is a strong university presence and a high level of educational attainment. The economy has an interesting mix of declining and emerging industries, but employment overall has been relatively stable. Winston-Salem, as the name suggests, has been a center for the tobacco industry. (The cigarettes are named after the town, not vice versa.) Winston-Salem is also home to Wake Forest University, some affiliated high tech business, a collection of banking centers and is home to Krispy Kreme donuts and a new Dell Computer plant. High Point is a world trade center for furniture and is still center of the state’s largest furniture-manufacturing industry. Unfortunately, the dislocation of that industry offshore, particularly to China, is having an impact on its manufacturing base. Downtown High Point is a fascinating collection of commercial, warehouse and showroom facilities centered on this industry. Winston-Salem epitomizes the shift from older economy to new economy, and High Point is an industry town shifting emphasis from manufacturing to becoming a trade and design center. The nearby Greensboro metro area is perhaps the most prosperous of the three, though all places are generally appealing with a lack of major downsides. The nearby amenities of the Raleigh-Durham area, about 80 miles to the east, are close enough for residents to benefit.
