WalletPop took a sneak peek at Old Navy's nationwide spring makeover on Thursday and liked what it saw.

A store at the Atlantic Center Mall in Brooklyn, N.Y., appeared airier, with an oval path cleared to keep the shopping traffic moving around the space. Entering a department is like stepping onto the off-ramp, essentially. Dressing rooms are now in the center along with the cash registers, acting as a natural barrier so customers don't crowd the middle.

Dozens of women, perhaps motivated by the unseasonably warm weather, moved briskly through the cashier lines, toting spring and summer fashions. An entire wall of flip-flops selling at two pair for $5 beckoned, trumpeting the chain's drive to return to its budget roots.
