There is quite a bit of malls in North Carolina for those looking for shopping, entertainment, place to hang out eat or kill some time. Which ones are your favorite? and love you to share why enjoy that mall.

I know some are smaller than others but if you like the small ones for a certain characteristic please share what that is.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be SouthPark. As a general rule I stay away from them if possible because they are too noisy and crowded for me (I am such a delicate little flower, aren't I?)

So I stick with Birkdale if at all possible....

I don't like malls either. South Park is too "I'm better than ecveryone with my botox and Lexus my ex-husband paid for" for me. Concord Mills doesn't offer anything special and it is tooooo crowded even during non-race time. Carolina Place is ok because it seems to be just an average mall and isn't always too busy, plus it's close to my house. My gf currently works at Northlake and they are only doing 25% of sales per square feet than what was projected (for the entire mall). So it is usually nice and quiet there.

When I was looking up the various malls one that came to my mind was one that use to be in Greensboro but I couldnt find anything on internet about it.

I thought it was called the Cotton Gin but I guess im wrong since I could not find any information. It was a antique style design where you could get fresh peanuts and popcorn and explore the shops in what use to be a cotton gin or manufacturer. I hope the building is still around if the mall isnt because of the historical nature of it. The next time I am in that area I got to go see if it is still there. My mom use to take us there to go get some Members Only Jackets so we would fit in lol.

If anyone know the details of it or history please share.

OMG I could not agree more!!! You can actually get looked at funny for not wearing desinger clothes.

I love Concord Mills. Also Carolina Place-I just finished working a p/t job there (Easy Spirit store that closed) and found it a nice mix of EVERY kind of people, young, old, rich, poor you name it!!

The Outlets in Gaffney (SC) are good too!

True, not a place to wear shorts and a t-shirt. I guess that's why I like it in some ways since the sloppy crowd (City-Data shoppers excluded ) at Concord Mills makes me uncomfortable. Carolina Place or Northlake is a better happy medium I suppose. And I agree, I like Gaffney shops, plus you get to see that big Peach watertower that looks like a butt.

I think it was called Cotton Square or something. I can't really remember. It closed down years ago. The building is still there though.

I voted for Friendly Center and "Other". The "other" is Four Seasons Mall in Greensboro.

I've been to a few others (Concord Mills in Concord, Crabtree Valley in Raleigh - too crowded; it's hard to get a good parking space there, Cross Creek in Fayetteville, perhaps a few others) and they're okay.
