While the Old Navy located in the Harford Mall closed Thursday, it won't be long before shoppers again have access to the store in Harford County.
Old Navy will move to the developing Boulevard at Box Hill shopping center in Abingdon later this year, a company spokeswoman confirmed Friday.
"We are constantly evaluating our store fleet to ensure we have the right stores in the right locations to best serve our customers," Andrea Hicklin with Gap Inc.—which owns Old Navy—wrote in an email to Patch Friday.
"While we don’t have specifics to provide about the Harford Mall store, I can tell you that we look at a number of factors – including our existing store base, market demographics and sales potential of a particular market."
Old Navy has leased 12,500 square feet for its new store, Tom Fidler, senior vice president and principal of MacKenzie Commerical Real Estate Services, the Boulevard's consulting and leasing agent, wrote in an email to Patch Friday.
The store will be part of the shopping center's next phase, which includes about 49,000 total square feet of retail space, according to Fidler.
"We are hopefully to deliver the new phase late summer, this year," Fidler wrote.
Sprint, Menchies Frozen Yogurt and Saxon’s Jewelers have also committed to space along with Old Navy.
"We are currently in the process of trying to finalize several national fashion tenants and local boutiques for the remaining space," Fidler wrote.
