Apex offers a variety of shopping experiences from our large retail centers to our quaint historic downtown located on Salem Street, which offer a unique and dynamic array of boutiques and specialty stores as well as restaurants. 

Beaver Creek Commons shopping complex, located off US Highway 64 and NC Highway 55, is the largest retail center in Apex.  Anchored by a SuperTarget and Lowes Home Improvement, there is an additional 100,000 SF of retail space including AC Moore, Office Max, and PetSmart.

Beaver Creek Commons, the next phase of this mega-center, is full of exciting retail tenants.  Consolidated Beaver Creek Cinemas is one of the anchors in this neighboring section to Beaver Creek Commons and is joined by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Old Navy, TJMaxx/Homegoods, ULTA and others to be announced soon. 

A number of different restaurants and food establishments can be found, such as Carrabba's, Chick-Fil-A, Panera Bread, Chili’s, IHOP, Firehouse Subs, Red Robin Burgers and Longhorn Steakhouse, just to name a few.

Several other retail centers are just a quick drive down NC Highway 55 from Beaver Creek Commons.  Haddon Hall Commons and Olive Chapel Village, both anchored by major grocery stores, have a vast array of business types ranging from service industries to shops to restaurants.  While out and about shopping, more restaurants and service industries can be found at the adjacent Peakway Market Square.

Historic Downtown Apex offers a glimpse of the past with the amenities of today.  Shoppers in the downtown historic district can enjoy an eclectic mix of antique, home décor, and specialty gift stores intermixed with a variety of dining options.
