The Old Navy store in Carson Valley Plaza closed last March, forcing Old Navy fans to drive to Reno if they wanted to shop there. It also left a big empty hole in that shopping center, which still had all the major anchor stores it opened with in 2003. We wondered how long the Old Navy storefront was going to sit empty, but it only turned out to be five months.
Now a Dollar Tree is moving into the space, providing everyone with their $1 shopping needs. I guess this kind of precludes my hope that Old Navy would turn its finances around and decide to reopen the store.
