Old Navy will be opening a location in the center, which includes more than 150,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space on a 17-acre parcel of land next to Walmart. The addition was announced via social media post and confirmed during closing remarks at the Jan. 5 Stephenville City Council meeting.

Old Navy is an American clothing and accessories retailing company owned by American multinational corporation Gap Inc.

Several other national retailers have already announced plans to have stores in the shopping center, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2022, according to previous reports.
