Old Navy opens in Aberdeen Mall

The store on the second floor, in space previously occupied by Sears, is requiring shoppers to wear face masks.

As anticipated, Old Navy in Aberdeen Mall has officially opened — a few days ahead of schedule.

The store will be open seven days a week — Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Old Navy is also requiring shoppers wear face masks while in the store.

The opening was delayed indefinitely this past spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic-related construction delays.

More recently, the clothing store had been pegged for opening by early November and then Oct. 31 by parent company Gap Inc. On Wednesday (Oct. 28), a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the newest addition to the mall.

the clothing store had been pegged for opening by early November and then Oct. 31 by parent company Gap Inc. On Wednesday (Oct. 28), a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the newest addition to the mall.

The opening is more than a year in the making as city hall received an application for a building permit to construct the store in the last week of October 2019.

Old Navy is located across from Marshalls, which opened this past spring, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Located on the second floor of the mall, Old Navy and Marshalls are two of three new businesses filling out the space that has been vacant since Sears closed in 2017.

On the main floor, the third business, Fresh Street Market, which will be the mall’s lone grocery store, is expected to open by mid-November.

The 120,000-square-foot area could see even more stores added as there is an area behind temporary walls that can be filled.
