Work starts on Gap outlet in Tupelo
Tupelo is getting a Gap Factory Store, in case you haven’t heard (previous coverage).
The factory store is going in the former Circuit City – Furniture Center – Spirit Halloween store, which is next to Old Navy. The plans (see pictures below) call for a remodel of the interior and exterior of the building.
