Garner is a town in Wake County, North Carolina, United States and a suburb of Raleigh. The population was 25,745 at the 2010 census. The US Office of Management and Budget also includes Garner as a part of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Combined Statistical Area, which has a population of 1,998,808 as of U.S. Census 2012 Population Estimates.
