This is unfortunate. Gottschalks was the only department store in the city of Davis. The only chain clothing store left is The Gap. Gottschalks was the only source of clothing for many outlying cities.

Many of the Gottschalks locations were quite small for department stores. Other department store chains probably would not want to buy these stores due to their limited size. The stores never did much business.

Forever 21 has signed a lease for the former Gottschalks in Davis. The Davis store opened around 2000. It was a really nice store and always looked clean and brand new. The location is right across the street from the UC Davis dorms. When this place opens, thousands of college students, especially female students, will no doubt storm the store. It is in a perfect location for attracting customers.
