Gap In Viewmont Closing By Month’s End

January 1, 2019

Signs hanging in the windows at the Gap clothing store in the Viewmont Mall proclaim discounts on everything. The store is closing by the end of January, and it joins a number of locations the retailer has closed this year. Gap closed 21 stores in North America and opened nine between February and November this year, bringing its total to just under 800, according to a financial report. While online sales continue to grow, the fashion brand is shedding less profitable stores. Gap closed its store in the Wyoming Valley Mall, Wilkes-Barre Twp., in 2015. — JON O’CONNELL
