Old Navy Now Open At Northgate Mall

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Northgate Mall announced the opening of the new Old Navy store. The new store occupies the former Book Gallery space and includes over 13,000 square feet.   

Although slightly smaller than Old Navy’s former location, the new store is dubbed a Project ONE (Old Navy Evolution) concept store and features a simplified store layout and centrally located dressing rooms for an enhanced shopping experience. 

As a part of the “Grand Reveal” weekend shoppers will receive 20 percent off storewide along with special giveaways and free totes for the first 300 shoppers who make a purchase.  

A fashion show is also slated to take place in Center Court (near Auntie Anne’s) on Saturday from 1–3 p.m. The store will be open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 12-6 p.m. on Sundays. 

Burlington Coat Factory, a national off-price retailer, is set to open their first and only store in Chattanooga at Northgate Mall in October. The 63,000-square-foot store will be situated between Sears and JC Penney with entrances on the main mall as well as to the east parking lot. Several stores have been relocated to accommodate the construction which began earlier this year.
