It's small-town living with big-city possibilities! The Triangle is ripe with employment opporunities at major national and international companies like Duke University and Health System, IBM, RTI International, SAS, Cisco, and many more. But if you want a job right in Garner, you can find that, too. Some of the town's largest employers are Pergo, Cabelas, Golden State Foods, and Strategic Behavioral Health Center.

Garner students are zoned to either Wake County Public Schools or Johnston County Public Schools.
