Shoppers In Rural Areas Mourn For Gottschalks
The Gottchalks at Manchester Mall is one of the chain's more established stores, but for our story we decided to go to one of the outlying locations, because that's how Gottschalks built its business for more than a century and because the closings there will affect customers most.

I will miss the Oakhurst Gottschalk's every time I need some clothing. Driving into Fresno or Merced seems to be the only choice. Where else can a buyer park once to purchase clothing for everyone in the family? Are there other choices in Oakhurst, Mariposa or Madera? No, I don't count WalMart as a choice. I can't afford to replace everything annually due to shrinking and twisting (result of low quality fabric) or failed seams.

I am really sad to see the Oakhurst store close. The only place with quality clothes for everyone, it was always the best place to shop for gifts and clothes for kids and everyone else.

Walmart/Target are not perfect but we have bought many inexpensive clothing items over the years that have lasted through endless washings and dryings,3 children have worn numerous articles...a person can save alot of time and $ in only trip to Fresno,etc...plus you have lots of other choices,there is always on-line shopping.
