Shelby NC City Guide

Welcome To Shelby NC!            

Downtown Shelby.jpg

We are located in Cleveland County near the southern border of North Carolina. The city  is home to approximately 20,000 residents. Shelby is about an hour from Charlotte, Spartanburg, Asheville, Hickory, and Greenville.

The Beach, The Mountains, Pigeon Forge TN, Charlotte Regional Airport are all within driving range.

Shelby has historic charm and one of the finest courthouse squares in the Carolinas. Though much of the retail sector has moved from Uptown to the 74 Bypass area,  revitalization efforts have brought specialty shops and restaurants to the uptown alongside some  long established Uptown businesses.
