The Southcoast Marketplace will have a new clothing store soon!

Old Navy  is coming to Fall River and they've already started hiring.

Though no announcement on exact location or opening date has been revealed, Old Navy has posted a general manager job opening for the new Southcoast Marketplace store on their website and the shopping plaza itself has tweeted out the news.


The plan is to open before the back-to-school shopping season (makes total sense), so I image construction will be going pretty quickly.

The clothing store was placed #13 on Forbes list of the best places to work in retail, so if you are thinking of applying for the GM job here's what you should know...

Qualifications:

  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • College degree or equivalent work experience preferred
  • 3-5 years of retail management experience preferred
  • Ability to effectively communicate with customers and employees
  • Ability to maneuver around sales floor, stock room, works with and around cleaning chemicals, and lift/carry up to 50 lbs.
  • Ability to work a flexible schedule (including travel) to meet the needs of the business, including evenings, overnight and weekend shifts

You can apply right online and get more details about the position there as well.
