At The Forum, charming boutiques sit side-by-side with fine dining, sidewalk bistros and gourmet cafes. Shoppers can choose from a wide array of gifts, womens’ fashions, jewelry, antiques, imported furniture, handmade papers and gourmet foods. When the shopping is done, they can relax with an exquisite meal served al fresco under The Forum’s copper-roofed dome, or simply enjoy cappuccino and chocolates in an intimate cafe accented with original art and sculpture.

Sited on ten beautifully landscaped acres just one mile from Wrightsville Beach, The Forum is an ideal location for area residents and seasonal tourists. In addition to convenience, The Forum offers shoppers a sense of charm and graciousness unlike any other retail center in Wilmington. Classical architecture defines the property, which is framed by warmly colored Canadian sandstone and accented with arches, columns, pediments and balustrades.
