(Reuters) - Gap Inc (NYSE: GPS) said it would close all its eight Banana Republic stores in the UK as the struggling apparel retailer focuses on North America to revive its fortunes.

The company said it expects to close majority of the eight stores by the end of this year.

Banana Republic will continue to serve its UK customers through, Gap said.

The company said in May that it would shut 75 Old Navy and Banana Republic stores overseas.
