  • Eastland Mall [2]. Once the largest mall in the state, Eastland has seen better days. Located in east Charlotte, it has reflected that area's decline from its upscale origins. Eastland is still generally a safe place to shop, but the experience has been made considerably less comfortable by negative press arising from gangs and robberies at the mall and surrounding area. However, there is hope on the horizon; a new transit hub located adjacent to the mall is expected to pump some life (and money) back into the area. Includes a movie theater that specializes in "G" and "PG" films; anchors are Burlington Coat Factory, Dillard's Outlet and Sears.
