The Gap, once a popular clothing store in most every mall has joined several other mall based retailers in closing stores. The Gap plans to close a total of 175 stores nationwide, all at staggered closing dates. And, one of those closures will hit Spokane, with The Gap going out of business inside Spokane Valley Mall.
The final day for the Spokane Valley Mall Gap store will be Jan. 26th with going out of business sales continuing from now up until that date.
The Gap, is not leaving Spokane however as the store in Downtown Spokane's River Park Square Mall is planning to stay open. The parent company behind The Gap, Gap Inc. also still has a major presence in the Lilac City with an Old Navy in the plaza next to Spokane Valley Mall, and a Banana Republic located inside River Park Square.
