A clothing store in Union Gap will be closing it's doors after more than five years at the Valley Mall Plaza.

The Eddie Bauer Outlet in Union Gap has posted "store closing" signs and is selling items at 40 to 60 percent discount.

Employees say the store will be closing at the end of the month.

One shopper says she comes down from Ellensburg to shop at stores like Eddie Bauer, and is sad to see it leave.

"It's sad to me to lose any store in the Yakima area, especially one here at the mall's central area," said Kristin Taylor, "I guess the tail end of the economy is really kicking in here."

We attempted to contact company officials for a comment, but our calls were not returned.
