This may only be for locals in the Rochester area but I thought it would be nice to share….
Just in time for the holiday grind was the opening of the new Old Navy location in Marketplace Mall. The relocation was a great strategic move for the company and the mall before the holidays to catch the consumers that will be shopping in the mall, just days away from Black Friday. If you remember, this is second time Old Navy has moved in less than six months. Earlier this year Old Navy’s lease ended in South Town Plaza so the company moved to the old DSW building while the new store was being constructed. The Wilmorite family owns that entire land surrounding the mall so the move to DSW was only temporary.
The store opened a few hours after I arrived-just in time to give me a chance to look around. It’s definitely a beautiful addition to the mall inside and out with its clean architectural design and well-lit lighting fixtures from within. While I was yet a few feet away from the entrance, I was thankful for the automatic doors on such a chilly day. I’m always cold- so anytime when I don’t have to take my hands out of my pocket while outside is a good day. Yea it sounds lazy but its the truth…
The sales were pretty good as compared to their website to kick start the holiday season.
Although the retail giant opened today, the grand opening will be held this Saturday, November 20th. All graphic tee’s will be $3 for men and women and the first 200 shoppers will receive tickets to win a free pair of jeans, a t-shirt, or a $500 gift card for a shopping spree. If you’re not one of the early birds to receive a free prize that morning, make sure to arrive between 3:30pm-5:30pm for 98PXY’s contest in order to enter the MODELQUINN contest. I dress mannequins all day so I’m not too sure I’ll be entering that competition:)
