Shopping

Please note: We are providing this list for your convenience, but it is NOT a complete list! (Although they are not within walking distance of campus, they are just a short drive away.)

Friendly Center

Are you looking for serious sales or just window shopping? Either way, you're bound to find something of interest in the 100 retail stores and restaurants at Friendly Center. Next door you'll find the new Shops at Friendly Center, which offers even more shopping and dining options. Both are located on West Friendly Avenue.

Downtown Shopping

If you want to get away from the chains and shop some locally owned businesses, you'll find a variety of stores downtown—antique stores, boutiques, gift shops, and art studios, just to name a few. If you are looking for a souvenir of your trip to Greensboro or a gift for someone back home, the downtown area offers plenty of options. Located just a mile from campus (take a right on West Market Street).

Target and Walmart

If you're like many college students, you want to know if there is a Target or Walmart in town so you can stock up on supplies. Rest assured, both stores have several locations in Greensboro.
