A look inside Sardis Marketplace, the newest retail shop in Monroe Road area

Events, News

Sardis Marketplace ended up in the Monroe Road area for reasons familiar to many of our residents. Formerly known as Consignments on South, owner and Charlotte native Jennifer needed more space to house her shop’s local art, handmade furniture, jewelry, vintage clothes, designer soaps, gifts, and artisan glass than available on South Boulevard. She could not find the right fit in South End, but came across ample space off of Sardis Road North.

The new retail spot is 20,000 square feet of shopping space in the long-vacant building on 2328 Crown Centre Drive | Charlotte, NC 28227, near the former Steve and Barry’s University Sportswear warehouse that is undergoing extensive renovations. The ample and cheap residential and commercial property has created a recent boom for the Monroe Road corridor, bringing in new residents and businesses alike. Thanks to Sardis Marketplace, neighbors have a great new place to shop locally.
The shop owner and over 60 vendors sell reclaimed, refinished, antique, and new items in the marketplace, ranging from cooking spices to new couches and even steampunk accessories. The dog-friendly shop hopes to add a salon, a massage area, a coffee shop, and even a place to buy local beers. Residents finally have a nearby shopping option that is not a big box store.
Sardis Marketplace will have its grand opening on Saturday, June 11 from 10am to 6pm. There will be food trucks, live music, and door prizes to celebrate the new business. See the newest addition to the corridor and support the area by shopping locally.
