Hot dog shop closing to make way for retail giant

. July 31, 2019.

Alpha Coney Island in the Oak Valley Shopping Centre will be closing after 30 years to make room for a rumored Old Navy. Coney Island owner, Marwan Al-Rabie, was given the opportunity to move into a different space in the shopping center, but the new location would require renovation so a final decision has not yet been made. Old Navy, if it comes to fruition, would inhabit the former Party City storefront (the party supply store moved to a different location within Oak Valley), but would need the added square footage of the Coney Island location. Earlier this year Old Navy announced a split from parent company Gap Inc., in the hopes that it would provide a boost for the fast-fashion brand.
