A gap is being filled in Kamloops' retail services.

Aberdeen Mall announced today that the retail clothing chain, Gap, will be building a factory outlet store in the mall later this year.

"Depending on construction, they'll hopefully be open in November 2013," said a Tweet by mall administration earlier today.

According to the Gap Canada website, only two other Gap Factory Outlet stores are in the province - both on the Lower Mainland with one in Surrey and the other in New Westminster.

While Gap is expected to generate positive business for the mall, three stores remain vacant in Aberdeen Mall. Guest services staff said the clothing store Roots shut its doors last August, while a former salon location beside Sears also remains vacant. East Side Mario's also shut its doors this month.

Despite mixed messages coming from the mall, two major retail stores are showing promise in the Tournament Capital.

Target is expecting to open its doors in Sahali Centre Mall this spring and Walmart on Hillside Drive is slated to expand services, with an increase in grocery products.
