Gap Closes NewPark Mall Location

Need some Gap apparel? If so, you won't be able to find any in the Tri-Cities anymore.

Gap has closed its location inside of Newark's NewPark Mall, leaving behind an empty shop without a sign. A small sign outside of the clothing store indicates that fixtures where clothes once were displayed are now on sale.

The closest gap locations are at Stanford Mall in Palo Alto and Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton. Gap outlet locations can be found at the Marina Square in San Leandro and at the Great Mall in Milpitas.

Jack. Very perceptive. Let's see if the FAQ page gets an update. You should join the local protest group> http://www.meetup.com/Red-Light-Camera-Protest-Group-of-Southern-Alameda-County/

I'm not surprised, Newpark has turned into even more of a dump than it was last year. I typically avoid this mall like the plague, but had to make a quick trip in to pick something up. I was in and out within 30 minutes and came out to find my car window smashed and an OLD iPod stolen. My alarm was set, and it's obvious that it has an alarm the moment you touch it. I was parked right outside of Red Robin, fairly close to the mall, and between two cars (not trucks) during a busy Saturday afternoon. Totally brazen, and very shocking. I will never go to this mall again, it's just trashy.

The timers are set to quick and the city knows it. Fremont had some cameras set to quick and adjusted them, they lost $30,000 on one camera alone. I believe Newark won't and don't care about the tickets or the Mall.

yeah, this place is starting to crumble. there is a sports shop that will negotiate price on merchandise. what kind of store is that. what store negoitate prices!, c mon. new park mall needs to revamp its exterior and interior. Seen tons of cracks and chipped paint, also time for a new modern tile floor. make the place extrvagant. Keep the consumers (the working class) coming and happy. We are in a age of changes and new.

But people didn't shop at Newpark, because the store offerings were not what people wanted. In all truth, the downturn started when the Target moved to Fremont Hub. I used to shop Newpark all the time, but my husband, who hates to shop always went to Stoneridge, and then when I realized Stoneridge is only 15 minutes away, I preferred their store offerings to Newpark. The mall just needs to be revamped and reinvented. Someone can do it. It's just a matter of who's willing?
