Setting the trends, setting the table: Superb shopping and dining

Variety, that spice of life, seasons the tempting mix of Valdosta-Lowndes shopping and dining, which, thanks to our energized and enterprising business class, offer up menus of consumer bliss that are nearly endless.

From deliciously unique local institutions to top national franchises, from big box selection and price to luxury brands, from the eclectic, electric vibe of Downtown to appealing mall and mixed-use environments, Valdosta-Lowndes is now serving and satisfying our entire region. The proof? Not just in the pudding or any other delectable Valdosta dessert, but in retail sales that top $2.8 billion annually.

Shop, dine, savor the moment:

Vibrant Valdosta: Dynamic Downtown

A $12 million investment in a Community Improvement District investment reaped an astonishingly fast return, and today a restored and restarted Downtown Valdosta is more than a place, it’s a five-senses cultural and commercial experience: Art galleries, live music and theatre, cafes and fine dining establishments, salons and on-trend boutiques, and much, much more. Dive into regular events like:

  • Art After Dark and First Friday: Extended gallery and boutique hours, dining specials, live music and more turn Fridays into festive evening celebrations on the first and third weeks of each month.

  • Farm Days: Our own Farmer’s Market held Saturdays in the Square throughout the season is another fresh and refreshing city highlight.

Picturesque Purchasing: Remerton Mill Village

Back at the turn of the twentieth century, the tiny village of Remerton was a cotton mill town and its houses were rented for 25 cents per room. Now those houses have been converted into a charmingly quaint specialty shopping area, picturesque surroundings for gifts, pottery, crafts, delicious dining and more.

Marvelous Mixed Use: Summit Pointe

Classic shopping and dining enjoy pride of place in this stylishly contemporary mixed use commercial center, conveniently located in North Valdosta.

Family Favorite: Valdosta Mall

Anchored by Belks, JC Penney and Sears, Valdosta Mall is a super-regional mall featuring more than 70 national and specialty retailers including Bath & Body Works, Bed Bath & Beyond, American Eagle Outfitters, Buckle, Crazy 8, Jos A. Bank, Old Navy and Ulta. The mall is the retail hub for South Georgia and many North Florida counties. Easy access to the center draws customers from a 17-county area as well as travelers off Interstate 75.
