Recently, Salisbury has become the home of several new retail stores along with a new shopping plaza —Shoppes at Summit. Dick’s Sporting Goods and Hobby Lobby each held their grand openings within the past several weeks at the Summit, and now several more stores are planning to open their doors.
Appealing to the teen and pre-teen/adolescent age groups, discount store Five Below offers an assortment of merchandise including everything from sporting goods, games, fashion accessories and jewelry, to hobbies and collectibles, bath and body, candy and snacks, room décor, storage, stationery, school supplies, video game accessories, books, DVDs, iPhone accessories, and novelty, seasonal and “gag” items. Located in Shoppes at Summit on Tingle Road, the merchandise ranges in price from $1 to $5.
If looking for a “cool way” to raise money, Five Below offers ‘FUNraisers’ in which they donate 10 percent of sales to the participating organization. Information can be found online at fivebelow.com/fundraisers or by visiting the local store.
Five Below is currently open and operates Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Mattress Firm is also open at the Summit, making it one of several Mattress Firm stores in Rowan County. Multiple locations at the Summit are still available for new businesses.
