Old Navy is Open for Business
The Old Navy clothing store opened its doors this week.
The store is located in the Trader Joe's shopping center on North Atherton Street.
Nashaye and Beau Fletcher took a look around inside Old Navy before going to dinner Friday evening.
The couple is from Woolrich in Clinton County and discovered Old Navy while shopping at nearby stores.
Nashaye says she appreciates the store's good deals.
"You can find nice quality clothes for cheap prices, especially their athletic wear," she says.
Lauren Brown of State College says she happened to notice the new store while visiting nearby Ulta. She walked out with a few items, including a T-shirt, sneakers and scarf.
"The deals are always good," she says.
Brown says she appreciates the wide selection the store offers, though, she says she would like to see more jewelry for sale.
Putting a slight damper on the shopping experience, Old Navy was experiencing a leaky roof Friday. Staff placed containers throughout the store to collect the dripping water.
Old Navy is next door to the Gap Factory outlet store, which opened one week ago.
Earlier this month, the Gap and Gap Kids closed its doors in the Nittany Mall.
"At Gap Inc., we're constantly reevaluating our real estate portfolio to ensure we have the right stores in the right places to best serve our customers," Gap Spokeswoman Andrea Hicklin told StateCollege.com.
