The first objective for a mall is the Entertainment/distractions for children. Concord Mills Mall is the best! An ideal Charlotte mall is the Concord Mills Mall (exit 49 off of I-85). This Mall not only has a huge movie theater, it has a bowling alley, and a NASCAR store with an indoor and an Outdoor NASCAR Go cart track in the mall! Yes, this mall is less than a mile from Lowes Motor Speedway, so racing is in the air. In addition to the Go carts, there is laser tag and a lot of other forms of entertainment for the children. Included in the mall are hundreds of the best names in retail including Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, Nike Factory Store, Osh Kosh B’Gosh Outlet, Zales the Diamond Store Outlet and Off 5th Saks 5th Avenue Outlet.
