Charlotte Area Malls Planning To Open This Weekend

As North Carolina begins to phase in business openings starting May 8th, the following Charlotte area malls have announced plans to open this weekend. So if you've been anxious to get out of the house and indulge in a bit of retail therapy here's where you can go:

 

  • SouthPark Mall  4400 Sharon Road | Charlotte, NC 28211
  • The Village at SouthPark   4310 Sharon Road | Charlotte, NC 28211
  • Charlotte Premium Outlets  5404 New Fashion Way | Charlotte, NC 28278
  • Concord Mills Mall  8111 Concord Mills Boulevard | Concord, NC 28027

 

However, be sure to call individual stores and shops first... some stores will offer curbside pick-up only for items purchased on-line (Neiman Marcus is one such store); others will let you shop only by appointment (Paul Simon Women, for example). And keep in mind that the malls will limit their hours of operation, entrances/exits that can be used, and the number of people allowed in at one time.

 

No word yet as to when Northlake Mall in north Charlotte and Carolinas Place Mall in Pineville might be opening. Individual shops and boutiques around Charlotte are also planning openings this weekend... but as with the malls, call first to find out "if, when, how" if you've got a favorite local shop you've missed these past weeks of isolation.

 

Other businesses that can reopen as of May 8th in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County where you can shop include car dealerships, electronics stores and bookshops.

 

Earlier this week I saw lights on in the Marshalls/Home Goods store in the Blakeney Shopping Center... maybe that means this popular shopping destination in the Ballantyne area will be opening soon.

 

"Honestly, shopping beats therapy anytime. It costs the same and you get a dress out of it."

... Sophie Kinsella

 

 

If you do decide to partake of a bit of retail therapy in Charlotte this weekend remember to follow social distancing guidelines and other safety protocols like wearing a mask.

George Souto hi George... we are phasing in very slowly over the next three to four weeks. It will be at least two weeks, if not three, before I'll be able to get a haircut and a manicure. I'm desperate! :)

Well then, Happy Name's Day to you both Admitedly, I had a panic moment. Did I forget A's birthday? Ron and Alexandra Seigel  Of course not, that is next month.  I hope it's good therapy for those who need it. Me, I'd just love to hit a trail soon.

Well it is good that things are slowly getting back to normal in your area.  Retail therapy doesn't do a thing for me.  But I have no doubt it will seem good to some just to get out even though it is different.

Hi Nina- our malls and stores are open, still being very careful about physical distancing and safety procedures. like Ron and Alexandra Seigel I could use some restaurant therapy. 

Ours are open but with only 25% seating. We picked up food last night and I went in to pick it up. There were diners there but it was strange seeing so few tables set up.

Morning Nina.

Finally, businesses are open for people.  Way to long if you ask me. Our restaurants are opening up Monday.

Kathy Streib good morning, Kathy...  NC is taking its first baby steps to reopening and restaurants, salons, gyms, etc. on not yet on the approved list. At least two weeks away from that I think.

James Dray good morning, James. I totally agree... if the Targets and Walmarts can be open to sell non-grocery items, what can't other stores be open if following safety protocols and social distancing? And did you hear that in New York the governor has announced that most of the new COVID cases are people who have been sheltering in place?

Nina, This morning an owner of 3 malls here has designated curbside pickup, positioned within the outdoor parking lot. Lets see how that works out for those retail stores.

HI Nina Hollander - love that quote from Sophie!  I had to be talked into moving to Sedona because the closest Nordstroms was 2 hours away. When I lived in SoCal - I had the pick of 5 stores all less than 1 hour away.  My husband and I make a shopping trip down to Phoenix 2 or 3 times a year. We stay up to 4 or 5 days.  I am about ready for a trip with nowhere to go! There was no internet shopping back then. Now I get my "fix" using the Web.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... I like how you think in terms of hours as to shopping distance! I think in terms of minutes! Although there may be something to be said for having an excuse for a serious shopping trip once or twice a year. I just like knowing that if I want a "retail therapy" break I can just "window shop" and do it without travelling more than 5-30 minutes.

Will Hamm hi Will... North Carolina has a three phase "opening" plan starting at 5pm today... hair cutting services I suspect will be amongst the last businesses to open.

Hi Nina:

Seems like lots of states are opening up again, and this weekend. There are small retailers here that can open, although I think it's only curbside service, but not the malls yet.

Good information to share with local residents!

Jeff

Jeff Dowler, CRS good morning, Jeff... what different retailers are doing here is all over the board... but that is as it should be... we should be able to decide how to run our businesses safely and as consumers to decide how/when/where we want to take advantage of services available to us.

Lise Howe hi Lise... Simon Group opened up their malls this weekend. Providence Group, not yet. It will take a while for things to get back to some level of normalcy.
