Concord has the outlet mall but Gastonia is between the Charlotte & the Gaffney outlet malls. I assume that your sister will be driving down to see you. She'd be going right by the Gaffney outlet mall & Hamricks' mothership. So Concord has an edge on shopping, but not by much.
I appreciate all of your help Your responses along with the others who responded are very helpful!

Glad to help. I don't pretend to be able to properly compare the cities because I don't know much about Concord. I have no reason to go there. There are threads about it & it's always noted that when the races are scheduled traffic is terrible. That's just a few days a year. Gastonia has a regular mall & there's tons of shopping on east Franklin. Downtown revival has been slow. An old mill is being rehabbed on west Franklin. Some rundown mill houses next to it will be rehabbed as well & turned into shops. There are empty storefronts by the mill that should come back to life. That should give the downtown revival a big boost. It won't happen overnight.

Thanks for the help about Gastonia. I'd like to hear more about Concord.

There are different areas of Concord. To me, the area near Concord Mills Mall versus the Downtown Concord area are very different. The Concord Mills area blends with NE Charlotte. For instance, the Highland Creek Neighborhood has some Meck County students, some Cabarrus students. The Charlotte City boundary is very large!!

I85 shopping such as Concord Mills and Kannapolis (Target) have driven most of the shoppers to it. The last time I was on 29 it had declined greatly. In Gastonia, Franklin Blvd Parallels I85 so closely, it has a thriving Blvd of Big box stores.

I85 traffic in itself is another story :/

We decided to leave the busy Northeast area of Charlotte 4 years ago for a quieter area What type of area does she want??? I was actually on here looking at the Greenville forum! LOL Moving there in a year or two.
