Gap Outlet to close at Gulf View Square mall


Gap outlet to close at gulf view square

Another sign of the retail world's problems: Gap is closing its outlet store at Gulf View Square mall. Gap Outlet opened at Gulf View in February 2007, replacing a regular Gap store. John Liu, the mall's director of marketing, did not know the store's last day. The retailer, which reported a 10 percent loss in the quarter that ended Nov. 29, has said it would close around 115 stores nationwide in 2008. "Unfortunately, Gulf View Square is one of them," said Liu. Gap Inc. owns Old Navy, which also has a location at Gulf View. Liu said he has no indication that the Old Navy could close.
