NEWPORT NEWS-Three new stores will soon open in the Marketplace at Tech Center shopping center in the Oyster Point area of Newport News.

Construction is underway at the site of the former Stein Mart located at 12080 Jefferson Ave. next to Ulta Beauty in the shopping center. Three new businesses will take up space there once renovations are complete.

On June 27, Mallory C. Butler with the Department of Development for the City of Newport News, confirmed that the three businesses are Athleta, Crumbl Cookies, and Homesense.

Athleta is a women’s active wear establishment owned by Gap. The new store opening in Marketplace at Tech Center will be the first location for the Peninsula. Athleta also operates stores in Richmond and Virginia Beach.

Homesense is a home furniture and décor store part of the TJX Companies, which includes TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, and Home Goods. The Newport News location will be the first store on the Peninsula for Homesense, which has several stores in Northern Virginia.

Crumbl Cookies is a national gourmet cookie chain. The store offers a weekly rotating menu of four different flavored cookies, with its famous milk chocolate chip cookies and chilled sugar cookies always available. This is the second Peninsula location for the cookie chain, which opened a shop in Hampton in Peninsula Town Center in December 2021.

The Stein Mart building had been vacant since late 2020. It closed shortly after the company filed for bankruptcy in August 2020 and shuttered all of its stores.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
