Gap Outlet store in Gloucester Quays set to close

Gap announced today that it will be closing all 81 of its stores in the UK and Ireland by the end of 2021. Business will not entirely cease, as shoppers will still be able to purchase their clothes online from the Gap website.

In a statement, Gap said: "In the UK and Europe, we are going to maintain our Gap online business.

"The ecommerce business continues to grow and we want to meet our customers where they are shopping.

"We're becoming a digital first business and we're looking for a partner to help drive our online business.

"Due to market dynamics in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, we shared with our team today that we are proposing to close all company-operated Gap Specialty and Gap Outlet stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland in a phased manner from the end of August through the end of September 2021.

"We are thoughtfully moving through the consultation process with our European team, and we will provide support and transition assistance for our colleagues as we look to wind down stores."

 the Gloucestershire outlet store in Gloucester Quays, which was one of the anchor shops when the centre opened in 2009, Punchline is led to believe will be closing on July 31st.

The closure of the Gloucester store follows the Cheltenham store on the Promenade in 2019, which shut up shop, one of 59 stores around the country that have been shut so far.

Punchline has contacted Gloucester Quays and is awaiting a comment.
