In the spring check out the Easter Bunny, and in the winter your young ones can greet Santa. Inside the mall you will find ATM machines, restrooms, and a visitor information center. The parking lot is huge, so remember which entrance you came in. If you come through one of the main entrances, you will hear a very nice voice reminding you which entrance you came in. This is a nonsmoking environment. Shopping hours are from 10am to 9:30pm Monday to Saturday and Sunday 11am to 7:30pm. They offer extended hours at Christmas. The speed park, several of the restaurants, and the movie theater all have extended hours.
Surrounding Concord Mills you will find plenty more shopping and dining options. Located just in front of the mall on the property you will find a Shake N Steak, Over the Border, TGI Friday’s, Chicago Uno, The Roadhouse, and Razoos.

This is one of the fastest-growing areas. There is constant construction and work on new areas going on even as I write, so there is no telling what will go up next. Both Lowe’s Motor Speedway and Verizon Wireless Amphitheater are only minutes away. If you are not a race fan, then this area should be avoided at all costs Memorial Day weekend and the second weekend in October. It also gets pretty crowded at Christmas, so come relax and shop a spell.
