Northgate Mall has endured more changes since our last visit. The last original tenant Hallmark Jewelers closed along with GNC and a few other stores. Albertsons and Transcom also closed in early 2012 leaving two anchors empty. Part of the former Service Merchandise/ Transcom has been filled by Planet Fitness which will bring more traffic to the mall. Stage is the main anchor now at the mall and The Home Depot which is not attached to the mall is the other major anchor. A few new shops have opened in the mall, but the mall needs to fill the Albertsons which is facing the NE Evangeline Thruway (US 167). Lafayette is a growing city with a good economy, so now would be a good time to make the most out of this property.
The former Service Merchandise anchor that housed the offices of Transcom which closed in early 2012. Planet Fitness has taken over some of the space which helps the mall property.
As of early 2013 the retro mall directory is still being used.
The East end of the mall features a few stores with a Stage Department store and a new Planet Fitness both of which only have exterior entrances.
The center portion of the mall contains the majority of the stores and the junior anchor Anna's Linens.
Here are some views of the West side of the mall. Albertsons, JCPenney, and Montgomery Ward were located on this end of the mall. The JCPenney entrance that was bricked over is the first image.
As a bonus, here is the view from the entrance doors to the former Albertsons that closed in early 2012.
