Short on time and need to hit multiple stores? The Albany Mall has that for you. Belk’s, Dillard’s, JC Penney, and Sear’s serve as the anchor stores, but between them you’ll see Books-A-Million, Bath & Body Works, Children’s Place, Old Navy and more.
Lancaster Village landscape welcomes you in for the day!

Then right around the corner is Place on the Pointe, a gift shop that offers children gifts and embroidery/monogramming. And after a morning of shopping, have lunch at Mayberry Diner.
