Chicago Pizza & Taproom Coming To Northgate Mall This Fall

Friday, July 18, 2014

Following a year of major changes in 2013, Northgate Mall announced the addition of two more new-to-the-area merchants. 

Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom plans to extensively remodel the former Shane’s Rib Shack along with adjacent space for a total of 4,840 square feet.   The new restaurant plans to open this Fall and will feature a spacious patio with exterior bar seating, fourteen  60” Flat Screen TVs,  36 Taps, and their exclusive “ Dough Room” where guests can get an exclusive “behind-the-scenes” view of Old Chicago chefs preparing fresh made dough daily. 

“Old Chicago is excited to join Northgate Mall in its continued growth and expansion with our world-class pizza, great craft beer and a comfortable environment,” said Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom Director of Marketing, Mike Shannon.  “We look forward to exploring additional expansion in the region.”

Mike Mrlik, President of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom added “We welcome all surrounding communities to visit this milestone restaurant and try what the new Old Chicago has to offer.”

Another new-to-the-area retailer, Shoe Dept. Encore will take 13,213 square feet across from the new Burlington store and plans to open later on this year.  Shoe Dept. Encore is a footwear retailer owned by Concord, N.C.-based Shoe Show Inc., which also owns Shoe Dept., Shoe Show, Shoe Show Megastore and Burlington Shoes.  The new store will carry popular-price brands as well as Eastland, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, Hush Puppies, Life Stride, Rocky Boots, K Swiss, Reebok, Nike, Keds, New Balance and Hi-Tec.

“It’s another extremely exciting year for us,” said mall general manager Steve Banks.  “The addition of Old Chicago and Shoe Dept. Encore are just what our shoppers have been asking for and join the newly opened Old Navy and national off price retailer Burlington, slated to open in September.”
