Navajo Nation Shopping Centers, Inc. was created in 1983 by the Navajo Nation Council and was managed by the Navajo Nation Division of Economic Development as part of the Navajo Nation’s Overall Economic Development Plan. The development of the shopping centers is one way to boost the Navajo economy by providing jobs, goods and services, and revenue for the Navajo people.
Today, Navajo Nation Shopping Centers, Inc. has acquired its own Incorporation—Navajo Nation Shopping Centers, Inc. (NNSCI). As a result, the company is completely self-operational without any Tribal department influence, yet it operates as a Tribal Enterprise of the Navajo Nation. The most recent addition to NNSCI’s ten shopping centers is the Dilkon Shopping Center in 2002. And, coming soon is the development of the Family Entertainment Center in Twin Arrows, Arizona. This is Phase I of the overall The Outlook at Glittering Mountain development.
