Concord Mills is home to the outlets, steals and deals that make a shopper’s heart sing. Located just off I-85, it is anchored by Bass Pro Shop, a great place for the kids and husband to spend time while the lady of the house snatches up other bargains found in the mall.

Restored to the likeness of a colonial town center, Cannon Village is a haven for antique and furniture seekers. Historic downtown Concord is where the arts, history, shopping and dining come together in a few highly walkable, strollable blocks.

Afton Ridge shopping center is five miles north of Concord Mills and is home to the only Target store in Cabarrus County.

Also in Concord is Carolina Mall with a Family First Policy, which enforces those shoppers under 18, must be accompanied by an adult on Friday and Saturday nights.
