CHARLOTTETOWN MALL was the first fully-enclosed retail center in The South. It was quickly usurped by bigger and better shopping options in, and around, the Queen City. The mall was demolished in the mid-2000s and replaced by the New Urbanism-style METROPOLITAN complex.

COTSWOLD CITY, Charlotte's second shopping mall, opened in 1963. It was basically a strip-type complex, with a small interior mallway. The center was anchored by Ivey's, with A & P and Harris supermarkets. Today, the demalled facility is known as COTSWOLD VILLAGE SHOPS.
