Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined Old Navy to celebrate the company opening a new 11,600-square-foot store in Morgan Park. The store, Old Navy’s 1,000th location, is creating approximately 50 new jobs and brings the retailer to the South Side.
“This store will give residents the opportunity to shop in the neighborhood and create new jobs, and marks another down payment on the future of this great community,” Emanuel said. “When we see growth, investments and opportunity, we want to make sure they are taking place in every neighborhood across Chicago.”
The new store is located in Morgan Park’s Marshfield Plaza and features Old Navy’s latest store design.
The opening marks Old Navy’s sixth store in Chicago, and 30 stores in the greater Chicagoland market.
The new store was made possible by an investment from the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund, which leverages downtown development to create resources for commercial development in lower-income communities.
