Shop large, shop local: Big name retailers offering holiday cheer in Denton

It is safe to say the recent icy weather can serve as a reminder that the holiday season is upon us.

After being stuck inside for several days, the Denton community is back on the town performing their daily tasks of school, work, etc.

However, venturing out to find holiday gifts is on the minds of many. With half the month of December already behind us, people are searching for the best deals on the perfect presents.

Chamber businesses like Old Navy and the Golden Triangle Mall have been prepping for the holiday season by offering special deals.

Old Navy’s store manager Robin Wilkins says beginning December 12, the retail store has several holiday offers customers won’t want to miss out on.

“We will have new sales where items will either be 30, 40 or 50 percent off,” Wilkins said. “Customers can event get 10 percent off with any gift card purchase. Beginning December 15th, customers will get ‘super cash.’ For every $50 they spend, they will get $10 towards their next Old Navy purchase.”

The Golden Triangle Mall has also been spreading holiday cheer by scheduling events and offering special deals at their various retailers, as seen on their website.

The mall has also been prepping for the holiday season through their recent renovations, which include expanding the food court and adding new stores.

Matt Ludemann, General Manager of the Golden Triangle Mall says their expansion has gone beyond adding more places to eat and shop.

“We’ve added new signage, entrances, lighting and holiday décor,” Ludemann said. “We’ve also added Wi-Fi and leather seating areas.”

By expanding their services, Ludemann says shoppers now have less of a reason for choosing to leave Denton.

“By shopping here, we keep our sales tax dollars local,” said Ludemann. “It saves time and money from traveling to Dallas.”

Wilkins agrees. She says shopping at Denton’s Old Navy store not only keeps tax dollars local, but promotes the growth of the community.

“We hire a lot of students,” Wilkins said. “Shopping local produces jobs and allows our community to expand.”
