With so many businesses closed right now, it's a rare thing, indeed, to see the promise of a new store. If you've been isolating anywhere around the Westwood neighborhood of Kalamazoo, you've most likely seen the promise of an Old Navy store set to open this spring at Maple Hill Pavilion. Taking up residence in the old Office Max location, their brightly colored signs boast the promise of affordable fashion for the whole family, convenient shopping, and jobs. Obviously, with social distancing still in effect until May 15th, I wouldn't be surprised if this location's opening day is delayed in compliance, however, it's great to see a trusted brand take up residence in a location that has stood empty for years. So there's something to look forward to in Kalamazoo, right? It's the little things that will get us through.
