CLEARFIELD – Peebles, located at the Clearfield Mall shopping plaza, has a banner hanging outside, which announces a “Store Closing Sale.”
However, while this store will be closing its doors to local shoppers in the coming months, there are already plans for a new retailer to fill its space.
“… We are planning to convert the Peebles location in Clearfield, Pa., to a Gordmans store in early 2020,” confirmed Blakeley Graham, manager of brand publicity for Stage, on Wednesday.
Both Peebles and Gordmans are part of the Houston, Texas-based Stage community of stores.
“Stage has been converting some Peebles stores because consumers are responding positively to Gordmans’ off-price offerings,” Graham said.
Gordmans is an off-price retailer, which she said means that it has “a wide array of merchandise for the entire family at the lowest possible prices compared to department stores.
“Gordmans, which has been delighting shoppers for more than 100 years, has fresh new merchandise deliveries arriving weekly.
“There will always be something new to discover when it comes to popular name brand apparel, home décor, footwear, gifts, accessories, fragrances and more for the whole family. “
According to Graham, the Clearfield Peebles store is planned to close in the days leading up to the Gordmans grand opening in early 2020. The conversion from Peebles to Gordmans takes less than two weeks.
“All current Peebles associates will be offered jobs at Gordmans. Additional associates also will be hired during a job fair early next year,” she said.
Graham said more details will be made available as plans progress.
