We haven't done any shopping & husband & I are going to try to get to Northlake tomorrow. I am worried it's the last weekend before Christmas, so we are going to try to get there early.

We went to Northlake last weekend and it was surprisingly uncrowded. I'm sure it will be worse this weekend, but I think I hear the guy at Belk's say they were opening at 6 am

I drove down 485 to Rea Road this afternoon and the offramp onto Pineville Road looked to be a bit backed up, and the mall parking lot looked fairly full from what I could see.

As long as you're a bit patient and willing to deal with some crowds, I think you'll be fine.

I was at Southpark last night (Friday) and it was pretty clear, the weather had a lot to do with it I'm sure. I also went to Carolina Place this morning (Saturday) I got there around 10:00 and it was no problem at all. As I left around 11:00 it was starting to fill up.

I went to Northlake today and didn't think it was that busy. No trouble finding parking. We did try to eat lunch in the food court around 1:30pm and we had to hunt for a table and stand in line for quite a while. However, lines in the stores were not terrible.

I went to Carolina Place mall last weekend...it was pretty crowded. Circled around for about 15-20 minutes before I found parking spot. When I ate at the food court, there was aboslutely no seating available. But then again, that mall is always crowded. Not sure how it's looking this weekend, but I would imagine even more crowded since it's closer to Christmas. Good luck!

Big difference to Carolina Place is there no nearby mall (concord mills) and Carolina Place draws in South Carolina visitors from South Carolina. I have a gut feeling Northlake will pick up when if ever 485 is complete Currently only 77 only goes by Northlake and Carolina Place has 77 & 485

If the above poster is correct get there before all the churches let out at Northlake.
At the front entrance they do offer valet service

Is Northlake still overrun with thugs, losers and undesirables?

I cannot remember the count but we were overwhelmed with hearings "****'s" over and over and over again on our first and last trip there just after it opened. And I am an ex-sailor!!

Hope they have it under control. Then again, maybe that is why it is not so crowded.

Carolina Place was very busy today. You can tell it is the last weekend before Christmas. But it's not a situation where you walk out screaming or anything b/c of the crowds.

The parking lots for Concord Mills were completely full today, so much to the point that people were actually parking in the overflow lot.
