Erie, PA, September 26, 2013 – On Friday, November 1, 2013, Gabriel Brothers, Inc., a fashion retailer and first choice destination for Erie shoppers, will unveil its new 86,000 square foot store in Erie, Pennsylvania, doubling the size of the existing Erie store which will be closed as of October 30th. This new store will be the chain’s largest in the United States and will open under the name Gabe’s, the long-time moniker coined by loyal shoppers.
