for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Located in the heart of downtown Concord, the Cabarrus Center offers professional workspace, meeting rooms, event space, educational workshops, networking events, business resources, mentorship services, and a host of amenities to support entrepreneurs who are launching or growing their businesses.
The Retail Lab serves early-stage and pre-launch retail business owners in Cabarrus and Rowan counties by providing an application-based, six-week immersive Boot Camp followed by an opportunity for new retailers to test out their concept in the Cabarrus Center’s Retail Lab Pop Up Store.
Every time you shop at the Retail Lab Pop Up Store, you support the local retail entrepreneurs who are starting and growing their businesses in your community. Shop everything from apparel, beauty and wellness products, handmade gifts, novelty items, art and decor, and so much more!
