I work Uptown (yeah, I know some of you resent the Uptown moniker, but save it for another thread) and sometimes I will stroll around during my lunch break looking for some decent shopping (clothes, shoes, etc.), but to no avail. Any suggestions?

On the occasion i have enough time, there's a shopping center on Kings Dr. that I know at least has a best buy and a Trader Joes. I'm sure there's probably a place you can buy clothes.

Yes, I am hoping to find something within walking distance of the financial district. And I have been to the couple of shops at the epicenter and in the "malls" in the banking towers. Very limited selection, and laughable prices. I even took the train down to South End one day, and the few clothing shops I found had raggedy looking hipster clothes at even funnier prices. I don't know how these places can even sell enough stuff to pay their rent, let alone make a profit. But if you are looking for a used Charlotte Hornets sweatshirt for $85, send me a DM. LOL

You must be new to area....Sadly thats as good as it gets as far as shopping is concerned near downtown. Not much of a selection. I do miss downtown shopping in Charlotte.

There is virtually no shopping uptown, very little clothing stores. Heaven forbid you broke a heel on your shoe, you will be out of luck. Keep an extra pair of shoes at work for emergencies and clothing in your car. It happens to all of us, we rip our pants, zipper burst, stain on blouse/shirt. For those coming from bigger cities, it was a quick trip to a store within walking distance for a quick fix.

Assuming you're a woman, Ivy & Leo in Founders Hall has some cute stuff. I think there's a Julie's there as well. There's also a shoe shine/repair shop on the overpass just off the top floor of Founders Hall. I had a heel emergency once and they took care of it right away. If you walk thru the overpass, heading towards the Bank of America Plaza building, there might be some random shops. Used to be a miniature Belk store where you could get cosmetics and perfume. Other than that, nothing comes to mind.

Revolution at the Epicentre has good brands: BB Dakota, French Connection, Ben Sherman, Fred Perry TOMS. Belle Ville, I believe is the name, is also there. Some of their clothes can be cheap looking - you gotta pick through to find a couple of good pieces.

What about Lotus in Metropolitan? That place is owned by a lady that used to play on my soccer team. She has a business facebook page that you can look at all the deals and new inventory on.
