Software Etc. is the newest tenant in the Newgate Mall in Ogden, and the Quilted Bear Antiques and Crafts has moved within the mall.
They are part of 100,000 square feet in retail shops that have been added recently or opened this year. Software Etc., with 1,500 square feet, is new to the Newgate Mall. The Quilted Bear, at 22,00 square feet, has been in the mall since 1993 but decided to relocate.Mark Adair, mall leasing representative, said he has announced new store openings every month so far this year, and that momentum should carry over to July 8 when B. Dalton Booksellers opens and Aug. 1 when Fred Meyer Jewelers opens.
The mall is undergoing a redevelopment and remerchandising program to expand the selection of items and bring the latest retail formats to northern Utah, mall officials said.
Part of the remodeling involved adding a two-level Dillard's and completion of a $3 million Sears renovation.
