"Shopping and Fun"

For fun and shopping, Downtown is the destination in Concord, CA. Let’s just take an overview of some of the things that you can do in Downtown Concord:

Need a car?

You can find it along Concord Avenue. That is where you will find the VW, Ford, Chevy, Saturn, Honda and Acura dealers. (There is also a MINI dealership down on Market.)

It is also where you will find various automobile related businesses like autobody and auto glass companies as well.

And it is not just automobile shops. There are companies as diverse as a dialysis provider, a legal document recorder, and home-study course for those in the medical professions.

Need some pet supplies or electronics?

Downtown Concord is also home to a number of retailers from Petsmart and Fry’s Electronics to Burlington Coat Factory and T-Mobile. There are multiple strip malls that run along Willow Pass Road through the heart of Downtown.

Want to catch a flick?

The Brendan Theaters multiplex is right at the corner of Willow Pass and Concord Ave.

Want to go out for a bite?

Try the Elephant Bar, Swagat’s Indian Cuisine or DJ’s German Bistro.

Want to have some kid friendly fun on a hot summer day?

Well, then Waterworld might be just the destination for you and the family.

There are even some moderately priced apartments at the edges of this neighborhood. Here you can find apartments for between $900 and $1300. (There are a fewer newer and bigger ones that go for more.)

Put simply, this is the place to go for shopping and fun.
