The issue for Gap is that their clothes are nothing special and are very expensive compared to H&M, Primark etc. There does seem to be a general reduction in stores, the Bristol city centre store has gone, there's one at Cribbs and a kids only store in Bath plus a couple of outlets at Ebbw Vale and Bridgend.

The St. David's store always seemed to be stuffed with sale racks at the entrance as well which isn't a good look at all.

Another loss for the upper Arcade. If Monsoon goes which has been mentioned, that’s a big expanse of empty space. Would that leave just Lakeland in that area past the Apple Store? They were definitely expecting John Lewis to be a bigger draw.

I think and hope they’re planning something with all that space. Mermaid Quay managed to squeeze a cinema in so I’m sure Saint David’s could get one in? Need to focus less on retail, more on dining/bars and experiences. That seems to be the way the high street is moving. Rebranding that upper arcade area could work well. Perhaps knock a few of those big 2 storey units together and try something new.
