Chester will lose another of its long-standing high street shops when Gap shuts its doors next month.
A spokesperson for the American clothes retailer confirmed that the Northgate Street branch, will close on September 22, following an announcement that bosses would be closing a quarter of its stores in North America.
The Chester store has been in operation for more than 10 years.
Gap representative Sean Piazza told The Chronicle: “On June 15, Gap Inc announced a series of strategic initiatives designed to increase productivity and profitability at its namesake brand.
“As part of Gap brand’s comprehensive effort to position Gap brand for improved business performance, the brand will right-size its speciality store fleet to better reflect how customers shop.
“These changes will help Gap showcase its brand in the most successful locations, and enable the brand to remain focused on offering consistent, on-brand product collections and enhancing the customer experience across all of our channels, including a smaller, more vibrant fleet of stores.
Mr Piazza added: “As part of this effort, I can confirm our Chester location will close on September 22, 2015.”
