Janaf Stays Strong, Steady, Focused

June, 2010

In the last several years, Janaf Shopping Yard has added a number of retailers that have changed the face of the Norfolk shopping center. The outdoor center with more than 90 retailers, whose revenue increased from 2008 to 2009, is in a highly traveled stretch of the Military Highway corridor. "The location is good in terms of the retail region and it has a convenience factor to it," said Chuck Rigney, assistant director of the Norfolk Department of Development. From a retail perspective, he said, Janaf has become "an extraordinarily important corridor" for the city. Janaf Shopping Yard benefits by being at the intersection of two major highways: Virginia Beach Boulevard and Military Highway. Interstate entrances onto Military also help. "The traffic counts are terrific, and that's what retailers want," Rigney said. "I think Janaf has shown a history of re-creating itself. "
