Sign 'O the Times

The Outlet Company, which first opened in Providence in the 1890’s, expanded to Garden City Center in the 1950’s. A popular brand throughout the state, it offered discounted merchandise at Manufacturer’s Wholesale prices. In order to further promote their goods, The Outlet Company entered the broadcasting business. One of their stations, WJAR, still exists on your home cable channels today! This mid-century designed building now homes Old Navy and Ulta.
