Where To Go Shopping in Charlotte, North Carolina

Northlake Mall

Just ten miles north of Uptown, Northlake Mall is a popular destination for those who value style and selection. The mall offers over 150 retailers including H&M, Michael Kors, J.Crew, and Banana Republic. There’s also a variety of restaurants and a 14-screen movie theater. With so much to explore, Northlake is the perfect place to spend a rainy afternoon.

Carolina Place

Carolina Place is a 1.2 million-square-foot mall located right outside of Charlotte in Pineville, NC. Anchored by big-name retailers like Sears, Belk, JCPenney, and Macy's, the mall is also home to many unique stores including American Diva, Francesca's, and Garage. This diverse mix of both classic and uncommon stores creates the ultimate shopping experience for visitors.


Looking for something a little more unique? Charlotte’s vibrant downtown neighborhoods offer countless specialty stores and boutiques. From South End to Uptown, these shops will help you get in touch with the local vibe. NoDa, also known as the Queen City’s arts district, features some of the most eclectic shops in the region. We suggest visiting Summerbird, Ruby’s Gift, and Elle C. Luxury for special, one-of-a-kind items. Midtown is another great place to explore and offers stores like Lotus and Lipp Boutique right outside Uptown. Or, visit Center City and drop into Blis gift shop, The Beehive, Ivy & Leo, or Abbeydale for some much-needed retail therapy. No matter where you wind up, you’re sure to find the perfect outfit, gift, or souvenir!

Vintage Shops

For timeless items not found anywhere else, visit one of the many consignment shops and thrift stores around Charlotte. One of our favorites is the FROCK Shop, a quippy storefront off Central Avenue that offers local art, accessories, and clothing. Or check out The Rat’s Nest in NoDa for funky finds like leather jackets, ringer tees, and cowboy boots. If vintage furniture and homewares are what you’re looking for, head to Sleepy Poet Antique Mall and spend some time perusing the aisles at your leisure.
