On the heels of the announcement that the Texarkana Staples store would be closing, we are receiving reports that the GAP Store, located in Central Mall, will be closing their doors before the end of January.

This status update was posted on the store's Facebook page this morning...

It is with great sadness this morning that I am announcing the closing of Gap Texarkana. We will miss all the people that have helped us be successful through the past 14 years and hope to see everyone before we close the doors. The last day for product will be Jan 26th. After the 26th, the fixtures will become available with credit purchase through the 30th. Please see a member of management for details.

We called the store, and spoke to Patrick to confirm the information, and ask if the store may be moving to a new location in the Texarkana area, but for now there are no plans to relocate, just to close the doors. Store fixtures, such as tables, and display racks will be available to purchase after January 26th.

The Gap Inc. also owns the Banana Republic Brand, and Old Navy.

We called Deborah Johnson with Central Mall to see if there were any plans for the space that will be left when the GAP Store exits, and was told that it was too early to speculate as to what will fill the space, but that their national team was out searching for a replacement.
