my name is alexa, and i was a gap girl.
gap was my first job at the age of 16 and i continued working there on and off till i was 21. i put quite a bit of time into folding those clothes, (obviously i was a denim expert). actually i was so good at my job that one of my former managers offered me an assistant manager position at the flagship store in san francisco after i graduated college. man would my life have been different if i took that position! but i digress, the point is, i spent a lot of time with the gap and upon hearing that my store was closing i was sad.
i asked myself, how does the gap close? there is supposed to be a gap in every mall in america! how can the belden village mall ( in canton ohio) not have the volume to sustain a gap? is it the mall or the brand? go ahead and marinade on that one for a while...
my mom (stepho), sent me a picture of my old store from her camera phone. by the way mom, i am VERY impressed that you send me a picture text. you are officially out of the stone age.
so gap #3603 i will miss you... along with your jeans, button downs, pique polo shirts, puffy vests, 3 for $9 socks, velvet holiday wear and favorite tees.
