CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Amélie’s French Bakery & Café announced it will be closing its location in uptown Charlotte due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The uptown store, which is located on the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and South College Street in the Two Wells Fargo building in the center of Charlotte, will have its last day of business on Sunday, Nov. 8. Amélie’s cited COVID-19 restrictions and businesses using remote working as reasons for closing the location.

Amélie’s said it has offered all employees at the uptown Charlotte location jobs at other locations in the area, including NoDa, Park Road and Carmel Commons. All other Amélie’s locations will remain open. 

This is now a new initiative looking to bring business back to uptown.

This includes an Uptown beer garden, two ways to stock up on fresh fall veggies and specialty items and a free action classic movie outdoors. Not to mention Street Eats outside of some of your favorite restaurants, plus free or $1 parking.

It’s all happening in Uptown Charlotte this weekend.
