Why Old Navy would close a store in a college town like DeKalb never made sense to me, but it appears they have realized the error of their ways...eight years later.

The Daily Chronicle in DeKalb reports;

After eight years away, Old Navy is returning to DeKalb, and will make its home at the former Barnes & Noble site at 2439 Sycamore Road in the Oakland Place shopping center.

Paul Shand, director of retail properties with Mid-America Management Corporation recently told the Daily Chronicle that the lease for Old Navy's new store in DeKalb has been in the works for over a year and that it officially begins this summer so that the store can open in time for back-to-school shopping. Makes total sense, right?

Fingers crossed all goes according to plan and that they open on time.
