Gap stores to consolidate at Bradley Fair

WICHITA — The Gap is consolidating all its Bradley Fair stores — including GapBody, GapKids and BabyGap — into one location.

The decision isn't a financial one.

"Actually, it's primarily for the convenience of the customer," says Karen James of Laham Development, the developer of Bradley Fair.

"They really feel like they would like for the Gap customer to be able to shop all brands in one location, rather than have to go back and forth between multiple stores," James says.

The stores will all locate in the 12,000 square feet where the Gap and GapBody are.

For now, though, those two stores will move into the space where GapKids and BabyGap are while the other space is remodeled.

"The store's going to be very nice, too," James says. "They also wanted to remodel."

Remodeling will be complete in November.

James can't talk yet about plans for the 7,800-square-foot space GapKids and BabyGap will vacate.

"We're not ready to announce anything quite yet, but we're working on a concept that we think will be very exciting for that location."
