We took a drive from Davidson North Carolina to Greensboro to check out the town and have dinner. I especially like that this shopping area has lots of great stores: Anthropologie, Sur La Table, Macy’s, Whole Foods, too.
I especially like that Greensboro is very close to High Point and that is like a furniture lovers destination. I’ll definitely be back to explore more of this shopping area.

Walking around Friendly shopping center can take a boring afternoon and make it a memorable family experience. There are several excellent restaurants, an upscale moving theater with recliner seats, and small to very large retailers.

Great spot for shopping and dining. There are several stores and restaurants to choose from. Spots to get a little something sweet after you eat too!

My 2 daughters(ages 3yrs and 16yrs) visited Friendly Center today.Just kinda a girls day out. I have never felt so"out of place" in my life. Most of the places were pretty good and the people were nice but the pet store (Friendly Pets) made us feel out of place.We couldnt get any help what so ever from anyone working there.My 16yr old was trying to ask a worker a question about the fish in the back and the young lady rolled her eyes at my daughter and went to help the lady behind us.My girls were ready to go. Never will return to that store! The rest of the other stores are okay. Most of the stores we go all the way to the mall for are there in Friendly Center. Great place to go if you want to avoid the mall..lol..

Is this place opened? I called Macy's & 45 mintues later--still couldn't get a person to answer the phone...it was during their posted open hours.
Then, I talked with another store & told that they ONLY SERVE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN VACINATED. I'm just trying to make arrangements for a rather large group to go on a shopping spree, dine & have fun to celebrate a birthday for this weekend & I'm hitting all dead-ends! Nobody wants to do anything! I guess they're closing!

The Friendly Center is the place to go for shopping or dining in Greensboro. Cheesecake Factory, PF Changs, Zoes Kitchen, Jason's Deli and Ben & Jerry are my favorites!

Multitude of stores-Boutiques-Coffee shops-Department Stores-Restaurants-Grocery needs. Can be extremely busy on the weekends. But well worth it.

We live close to Friendly Center, and visit it frequently. They really have two sections: one is an older (but updated) complex; and another just West of it is a new, very upscale center.

I couldn't possibly list all of the stores and businesses in both of the centers, but I'd say the number approaches 75. Everything from the most expensive clothing and jewelry to high quality restaurants, food stores, and--well, you name it. It is about as complete a shopping center as I've seen, and has something to satisfy most folks' tastes.

The primary downside here is parking. It is a popular shopping mecca, and there's only limited space at any business for parking. Demand often exceeds supply--especially on weekends, and especially near any holiday. But that does not seem to deter us because we average going there 3 to 4 times a week. Great place!
