According to a store employee, the GapKids store in Georgetown will close and its merchandise will be “consolidated” in the main Gap store across the street. As we strolled through the main Gap store, we noticed that certain parts were sealed due to renovations.
The move – if true – comes as no surprise considering the company is downsizing operations in the United States and ramping up expansion overseas. It’s not clear whether the entire Gap store will be remodeled (we didn’t ask), but the entire property needs an extensive facelift. The store pales in comparison to the Ginza/Tokyo location. The video link is a must see.
