WAUKESHA Two new shops are coming to The Shoppes at Fox River.

Waukesha Community Development Director Jennifer Andrews on Tuesday confirmed that Old Navy and the performance footwear company Skechers are opening stores at the retail development at 1180 W. Sunset Drive.

Andrews did not have specifics on when the stores were opening, but said she had spoken with the owner of the shopping center who told her national retailers would be opening storefronts there.

She said she believes the stores will be locating at an already constructed building on the eastern side of the sprawling center that currently includes Five Below and Ross Dress for Less.

The nearly 468,000-square foot development is already home to nearly 40 stores, including Target, Hobby Lobby, Petco, Pick 'n' Save, Ulta Beauty and others.

Currently, the closest Old Navy locations are located at Mayfair Collection in Wauwatosa and Southridge Mall in Greendale. Each are about a 20-30 minute drive from central Waukesha.

The closest Skechers is currently in Greenfield.

News of Old Navy and Skechers coming to The Shoppes at Fox River comes just a couple weeks after it was announced that Love Nails and Spa, ATI Physical Therapy and Supercuts Hair Salon would be opening locations at the center.

The Shoppes at Fox River opened eight years ago on the site of a former grocery distribution warehouse.
