Located on the corner of Sharon and Fairview road, Sharon Corners is a two-story shopping center featuring a diverse mix of merchants and restaurants.

Previously named Sharon Shopping Center, the strip mall underwent renovations, upgrades, and additions in 1993 to accommodate the growth in the area. The conveniently located and welcoming shops are home to national retailers like HomeGoods and Men’s Wearhouse but are also anchored by locally owned franchises and small businesses that are creating special experiences and products for their customers.

The inviting and walkable community is home to several local specialty shops and culinary concepts.
An anchor of the neighborhood, SouthPark Mall opened in 1970 with Belk, Sears, and Ivey’s as the main department stores. A fourth wing was added to the mall in 1988.

The shopping district was acquired by Hill Partners in 2014, who led a renovation in 2015 to enhance the shopping center while furthering the concept's original commitment to providing SouthPark with a unique specialty retail experience. Home to a mix of national retailers and privately owned boutiques and restaurants, the Specialty Shops is a special place to support local.
