Update: Winnetka Gap Closing Its Doors
Gap location on Green Bay Rd in Winnetka will be closing its doors this week.
Winnetka's Gap location — at 925 Green Bay Road — will be permanently closing its doors this week, an employee confirmed. The store is currently having a sale to get rid of its remaining merchandise.
"As part of our real estate strategy for Gap brand as outlined in 2007, we want each of our stores to be the best possible representation of who we are—a well-loved American brand known for its optimistic, casual style," a representative from Gap headquarters said of the Winnetka closing. "The Gap store closures scheduled in January 2013, including the Gap in Winnetka, are the final stores to be shut down as part of the long-term real estate strategy outlined in 2007."
